Progress with Tamil: Essay Competition Prize Presentation Award Ceremony



As part of this year's Tamil Language Festival, the Tamils Representative Council had organised a forum, Progress with Tamil on 18 April 2009 at the MDIS Auditorium. More than 600 Students and Teachers had participated and benefited from the event.

As a follow-up to the Forum, TRC had organised a essay writing competition for Primary and Secondary students to encourage students to give more thoughts to the issues raised by the speakers and the Q&A that was held. This was also to ensure that students had taken away positive thoughts on the session.

Many students who sent in their essay for the competition, 11 students from Primary level and 8 students from Secondary level were awarded cash prizes on Saturday 15 August 2009 at Ceylon Sports Club, 101 Balestier Road.
