Students from Zahira College visit India

New Delhi, 20 April, (

Seven schoolboys from the Advanced and Ordinary Level standards of Zahira College, together with their Principal A.R. Marikkar, are currently on a visit to India from 15 – 22 April 2013.

The visit is organized by the India-Sri Lanka Foundation, which has as its objectives, the promotion of greater understanding, educational and cultural cooperation between the peoples of India and Sri Lanka.

The schoolboys who are on their maiden tour of India and first ever overseas visit, are hosted in India by the Bal Bharati Public School, Pitampura Branch. Their time in India will be devoted to interacting with students at Bal Bharati Public School, attending classes, and undertaking joint activities as well as field visits.

The schoolboys from Zahira College, together with students from their host school Bal Bharati Public School, visited the Sri Lanka High Commission in New Delhi on 18 April where they interacted with the High Commission staff.

The students from Zahira College were appreciative of the opportunity afforded to them to visit India which they described as most rewarding – an opportunity to understand each other, learn from each other, share experiences and most importantly, discover commonalities. Students from both schools expressed keen interest to build upon this initial interaction to institute regular exchanges between their two schools.
