My past school was Keenadeniya Primary School, Ambepussa . While I was studying there, its principal was Mrs. Mallika Karunarathne. Karunarathne madam was always kind to us and loved wholeheartedly. She always guided us towards the right direction, telling us what to do and what not to do.
She wears simple but elegant sarees to school. She always wears a kind smile in her face that each and every student loved her. Her kind words added more to her simplicity. And this created a sense of great affection in the students of Keenadeniya primary school.
She served the school for 13 years with immense dedication. She developed the school with her farsighted view. She fed us with morals, will power and courage as well as knowledge. She was like a mother to the children of Keenadeniya primary school.
Last week, she bid farewell to Keenadeniya primary school, entering her retirement. I wish her all the success in her retired life on behalf of all her loving students.
May she live long and live a happy and successful life.
