SeylanTikiri, the beloved children’s savings brand of the country, joined forces with Supreme TV to bring an enlightening grade 5 scholarship seminar series to young students across the nation.
As the leading minor savings brand in the market, this collaboration underscores SeylanTikiri’s commitment to providingopportunities to children through innovation and engaging promotions.
The seminar series, conducted over a span of one and a half months from July to August, witnessed the active participation of over 5,000 grade 5 students from every corner of the island. These eager learners had the chance to acquire fresh knowledge, enhance their existing skills, and clarify subject matters critical for success in their grade 5 scholarship exams.
The seminars were led by Mr. Palitha de Alwis, a renowned educator specialising in Grade 5 scholarship examinations. Additionally, a separate seminar for parents of attending children was conducted by Mr. Sampath Athauda from Supreme TV, offering valuable guidance on supporting their children’s educational journey.
Unlike many initiatives that primarily target urban areas, Seylan Bank, in partnership with Supreme TV, extended its reach to sub-urban and rural regions. The seminar series touched the lives of students in Kantale, Embilipitiya, Wariyapola, Dambulla, Matale, Hikkaduwa, Polgolla, Mahiyanganaya, Nuwara Eliya, and Badulla, collaborating with local schools to ensure accessibility for a diverse audience of grade 5 students.
The response from both parents and students has been overwhelmingly positive, with participants expressing their enthusiasm for the program. The valuable insights and educational content delivered during the seminar series have sparked a desire for more engaging and informative events in the future.
As a brand committed to its values, SeylanTikiri consistently organises activities throughout the year for the benefit of its Tikiri Kids. These initiatives not only encourage children to develop good financial habits but also provide opportunities for them to accumulate enriching experiences during their formative years.
