With kids learning at home again, Atlas recently conducted an online activity camp for kids in grade 3-5 under the Atlas SipUdana programme. The aim of the activity camp was to facilitate activity-based learning with art and craft and provide kids who were stuck at home with a diversion from their daily homebound monotony. The initiative was received enthusiastically by the kids, with high levels of engagement, while also helping to develop their cognitive and other skills. Over 1,150 children participated and the webinar was broadcasted live on Facebook for anyone to access.
The session was conducted by reputed educationist and Visual Art communicator, Dayawansa Kumasaru, and primary grade teaching instructor, Nilanthi Hapuarachchi. The two worked together with Atlas to plan out the programme and, through a vibrant and lively style coupled with activity-based exercises, engaged and entertained all the participants. Atlas’s SipUdana programme is an ongoing initiative by Sri Lanka’s most loved learning brand, focused on helping to provide opportunities for children and teachers to be exposed to new styles of learning. The recent activity camp was one of many activities under the SipUdana umbrella, with many others planned in the future.
Explaining further, Kaushali Kusumapala, General Manager – Marketing, at Atlas Axillia said, “Making learning fun is our passion at Atlas and with kids staying home all the time these days, it’s easy for their learning activities to become monotonous. Thus, we set out to add some diversity and colour to the lives of our children. Many more such activities are planned for the future, and our fans can stay updated about these by following us on Facebook page. We also take this opportunity to thank the two exceptionally talented educators who conducted the session and all those who participated in it. We look forward to doing even more interesting activities in the future.”
