Despite the quarantine restrictions in several areas of the Western Province, the Vice Principal of the Primary Section of St. Anthony's College, Dr. Aruna Dhammika Karunarathna along with the teachers of the primary section brought up this novel concept of a Virtual Concert to showcase the unique talents of the students via the virtual platform. The overall event was successfully held with the support of the Principal of St. Anthony’s College, Sugath Bandara and was sponsored by Atlas Pvt. Ltd.

Pamaa Wee Ena Wasanthaya is an innovative concept that should be considered as an example by other schools islandwide. Amidst a chaotic situation in which education is temporarily disturbed by the pandemic and students are forced to learn through virtual classes, Zoom Live in Concerts are an exceptional concept to break down the monotony and the stress levels of children. “I appreciate the immense dedication and contribution of the parents and teachers who encouraged the students to sharpen their skills throughout the process,” said the coordinator of the event, Dr. Aruna Dhammika Karunarathna.
