Draconum Fabula 2022 – Annual Orientation Program of Leo Club of University of Moratuwa was held successfully on 20th October 2022. It was held at the university premises with the presence of Past Leos, members and prospects. Around 150 newbies joined us on this occasion. This time the theme of the event was based on the ever-famous TV series Games of Thrones and all the background items and crops were decorated graciously in accordance with the theme. At the orientation we were able to get to know our newbies and gave them a chance to share their project ideas with us. And it was decided to implement some of their innovative ideas as initiative projects in the upcoming months.
Leadership development is one of the major factors that are sought to be gained through Leo clubs. While developing our own leadership skills, we did not forget to bring out the hidden leaders buried inside our dear brothers and sisters. Through this initiative we hope to induce collaborative thinking and team skills in young school children dispersed throughout the country. Accordingly, LEAP itself stands for Learn, Engage, Apply and Perform.
Phase-1 of LEAP 22/23 was held on 26th and 27th of October 2022 at Godapitiya National School, Akuressa. A multitude of school children including prefects, received a complete training conducted by the experienced members of our club.
Starting from warm up exercises the games and activities heated up with each step forward. The large group was broken into smaller teams and they were given the challenge of being the best team by the end of the programme. Games like blind train and treasure hunt taught them how to develop trust in each other when working together as a team. The closing of the first day was done in style with a raging bonfire with impromptu drama sessions.
On the second day, an invaluable first-aid training session was conducted to train everyone present in the basic skills of first aid in the case of an emergency. A camping version of the cookery competition ensured that they learn to cook meals with limited resources. Amidst loads of fun and laughter, youngsters learned some essential soft skills they would require for their entire lifetime. As per the challenge set at the beginning, an awards ceremony was hosted to sum up the leadership camp with the best team being awarded the prize they deserved and all participants were awarded certificates.
Let's embellish together!
As UOM Leos, we are eager to bring some color to our university premises. The outdoor benches in the Sentra Court of University of Moratuwa were demolished due to a variety of reasons. That is why we initiated the Project Sentrovation.
As the first step, we solicited creative design ideas from our undergraduates with the intention of turning their ideas into a reality. We received a slew of fantastic concepts due to the design suggestion competition. Among many amazing, unique, and creative creations, the design by Kavindu Gayan was named the best.
Everything is now in place to launch Project Sentrovation. We invite all of you to join "Team Sentrovation" now.
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is a success.
Let’s do it together!
