Matthew and Robert visited Malamura School for the first time in February 2012. With the strategic principal Mr Weerasinghe at the helm, it is definitely a school in the ascendancy – there are currently 40 pupils in grades 1-3, rolling up to grade 5 over the next couple of years – and the parents actively support the staff in their determination to ensure their children have the best education possible. Their most pressing need at the moment is access to clean water. Extra Cover has agreed to consider a quotation for the building of a concrete lined well, with pump and connection to a water tank.
