Running in a straight line is easier. But, it is difficult to run, if there are hurdles along the road. So, if we want to run, we’ll need to leap above them. It is the same when it comes to our lives. It is easier to survive if there are no any challenges. But, we have to be ready to face challenges with our best effort, since our life is not a straight line, rather a path with lot of hurdles. As UoM Leos, LEAP is the stage that we built to make our country’s school children ready to face those challenges.
LEAP phase 4 was held at President’s College, Anuradhapura on 30 th and 31 st of March with a great success. Many leadership activities were done throughout the first day to improve leadership, quick thinking, creativity, time management skills and many other qualities among them. All of the students participated in those events with great energy and enthusiasm. At the end of the first day, there was a camp fire event that everyone was exited to enjoy. During the camp fire, dramatic skills of the students were shown and they were absolutely brilliant.
In the 2 nd day morning, a PT session was held and many PT activities were done in order to make them ready to face their next challenge. There, for the first time in a LEAP, a treasure hunt was done. It was done mainly to improve the students’ group working skills and quick decision making skills.
During these two days, a lot of memories were added to UoM Leo’s diary and the project marked its completion as another successful milestone.
