Rotary’s ‘Honda Purudu’ championship finals todayView(s):
This national project initiated by the Rotary Club of Colombo Metropolitan is the brainchild of well known musician Rukshan Perera. There are more than 50 such Honda Purudu values taught in these songs, advising children on how to conduct themselves in the situations of life with values and manners – respecting other religions and races, their parents and elders, being kind to others, being honest, not lying, saying sorry, thank you, preserving the environment, following road rules, staying healthy…etc.
With the support of the Ministry of Education this programme is being rolled out to 10,000 government schools around the country with schools already performing these songs at school events to promote values in children and their communities.
Now in its third phase, the national competition “Rotary Honda Purudu Champions” that looks to encourage the children to learn these songs and values through song, dance, speech and drama reaches its grand finale today. Thousands of children participated and the highly talented finalists will arrive at the Hotel Galadari in Colombo to perform at the finals today – Sunday, January 22 at 1.30 p.m.
Watch the competition live on the Facebook page “Little Minds Strong Values” today at 1.30 p.m.
Those interested can also watch the original song videos or the children’s live performances on the website WWW.LMSV.LK.
For Rukshan and the Rotary team, this project is not only a non-profit motivated gift of skill, dedication and effort, but a direct investment in the future of the country, that they hope will bear fruit in the years to come, in the peace and integrity all Sri Lankans long for.
