Sivapoomi School Trust is fund #64
Thushyanthan Sivarajah is an 18 year old student of the Sivapoomi School for Special Needs. He won a gold medal in Sri Lanka and has been selected to participate in the Special Olympics held in Athens, Greece this summer. This selection for the Olympics is a great achievement.
Recently, our Sri Subramuniya Kottam organized a special ceremony to honor this achievement.
The Sivapoomi School for Special Needs was founded 7 years ago by Mr. Aru Thirumurugan. Mrs. Kalaivani Kugathasan is the Director of the school with 14 teachers under her guidance.
We honored Thushyanthan who has been selected for Special Olympics as well as 3 others who won medals on the national level.
This school serves 215 students with mixed disabilities within the Jaffna District.
