Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo’s continuing children’s programme took on an environmentally friendly theme following World Environmental Day. Children learned to make puppets out of recyclable material with the guidance of Sulochana Dissanayake who also taught them to create a story for their puppets to act out, complete with sound effects and actions.
With it being the ninth programme conducted by the hotel, the Kiddies’ Camp crew and the little Campers have grown close. In a touching gesture three year old Riyana, a regular at Kiddies’ Camp, presented the crew with a bouquet of flowers and a giant card she had made to congratulate the hotel on its Best Five Star City Hotel status awarded at the recent Sri Lanka Tourism Awards. Young Shevon Pillai, crowned Avurudu Kumaraya during the April Kiddies’ Camp, made an environmental statement of his own. He wore a hand painted T-shirt he had made with his mother about the poisonous fumes emitted by badly maintained vehicles. Hopefully, his advice will be heeded and all vehicle owners will take responsible action.
