During the event, in recognition of the services of Sri Lankan teachers, a ‘Sri Lankan Teacher of the Year’ award was presented to Asith Muthukumara Jayarathna from St. Anthony’s Maha Vidyalaya in Dhaluwa, Puttalam. The award was created with financial assistance from former cricketer Aravinda de Silva, who had provided Rs. 1 million for the endeavour.
