8. First Live TV Talk show by Horizon Lanka kids in 2003

Vodpod videos no longer available.


TMG Chandrasekara, the Interviewer:

Radhika, In which grade are you studying, Radhika?

Radhika: I am studying in Grade 10.

TMG: OK, Grade 10. What do you remember of the start? I think you are one of the first members of the group, aren’t you?

Radhika: Yes. I joined Horizon when I was in Year 4. We were the first students of this school. I have now spent five years here.  

 TMG: You all were first under a tree…?

Radhika: Yes, under trees. We didn’t have any desks or chairs. So, we sat on the ground under the trees and did our studies. 

Wanni: I like to add that we had an increase of students recently and with that there was a problem of desks and benches. We didn’t have money either. Then one of the parents said, “We have a good tree in our garden. I’ll give it.” Some other parents cut the tree. Then a few parents who were good in carpentry made desks and chairs out of this wood. So, if we have cooperation like this, we can do a lot even if we don’t have lakhs of dollars.
