Rhino Changing Lives of Students at Thakshila College, Gampaha

Thakshila College, one of Gampaha district’s oldest schools, was widely discussed during the 2021 ordinary level examinations as a picture of students sitting for the exam in a damaged building during heavy rains was circulated. The public, including mainstream media institutions, brought the school’s plight to light, and that is when the

heart-warming story was picked up by Rhino Roofing Products Limited, who recognised the needs of the children at the school and decided to make a difference in these growing lives despite the country’s situation.

The school, which opened on June 12, 1992, with sixty students has grown to 2250 students studying in both Sinhala and English mediums. However, the school has recently faced menacing issues that have impacted students during one of their most important life turning points, the Ordinary Level Examinations. Under the leadership of the Managing Director, Rhino stepped forward to renovate the building in order to provide a safe learning environment for the students.

E. J. Gnanam, Managing Director of Rhino Roofing Products Limited, commenting at the inauguration ceremony said: “I am convinced that the country’s children and youth are at the forefront of change, and that we, as responsible corporates and adults in society, must help them grow into good leaders. A school is a foundation in every child’s life, and we wanted to give the children at Thakshila College, Gampaha the same opportunity because education is an equal opportunity. We wish Thakshila College’s talented students the best of luck in their future endeavours”.

Rhino Roofing Products Limited has been at the forefront of making an impact as a responsible corporate citizen for the past 60 years, and this time the organisation is taking a step toward changing the lives of our most valuable asset, children. Despite the construction industry’s degrowth and economic constraints, the organisation stepped forward as a responsible corporate to empower the country’s future.
