I am a Chemistry Teacher in The GCE O/L and A/L classes for nearly 37 years. I have written

many articles in chemistry for the general public in the Srilankan news papers. I have organised many Science Fairs and produced many Science Skits for the students of the present school. I am also the teacher in charge of the Science Society and the Environmental Society of the school.

I wish to organise chemistry projects, Chemistry quizzes and challenges and a chemistry magazine for the students of our school.

I have plans to write articles about IYC in the local news papers and inter school activities for the students in Colombo.
