My son Amila Senanayake has been studying at your College in 2 A class. His age is 7 years.
I would like to mention here that I selected your college because your college is the best international college in Sri Lanka for my son’s education. High level of education prevailing in your College and the discipline of the students as well as it is a specialty that the college is situated just 5.5. km from my home. It is a grave injustice that without giving any prior notice to me or without inquiring my ideas you have re-located the college at about 14 km distance. Kandy Road is an area which high traffic jam. Now it takes only 20 – 30 minutes journey to your college but now it will take for my son 1 or 1¼ hours to come to 14 km journey. This is extremely difficult during the afternoon. Reason is all colleges are closed at this time and there is heavy traffic jam. My son has to come home at about 3.00 in the evening. Then it takes 2½ – 3 hours for this small child for this journey and he is really frustrated.
In the evening he has religious classes. In the College also he has to participate in curricular activities. Child needs time for his studies as well as for playing in the evening.
We bear even higher term fees with difficulty in order to give my small child a better education, I have selected your college but today I have fallen into a pathetic situation.
However, I have decided to educate my son till advanced level at your college. I kindly request from you without obstructing my child’s education in between I have only option is to enter my child to a College near our house. We have only 7 KM only from our home to Rajagiriya. This is half of the distance to Dehiwala. In this area traffic also less. As such, I trusted your college and entered my son without hampering my trust , allow my son to study at your college. I think this is not so difficult. Reason is as I know only two students in Year 2 A and B classes are faced with this transport problem. In the event you make an effort definitely you can allow my son to make a space.
Your college has contributed to the education of this country and we have a great faith on it and we got together with you with the intention of giving our child a better education, and make him a disciplined child. Without considering the money disappointing my expectations and I kindly request you not to disregard my child and send him to another location.
I beg and kindly request you to consider the grave difficulties I am undergoing for my son’s education and my son be given a seat at your College.
