The Sri Lanka Air Force Pre-School Colombo, held its annual sports meet on 26 July 2017 at the Rifle Green Grounds, Colombo.
Hoisting of the National Flag followed by the lighting of symbolic Olympic torch started the proceedings for the day. A number of children’s games and fun activities were organized to give them a day full of enjoyment. The Kids’ Band display and Drill display took the attention of the personnel who witnessed the sports meet.
The establishment of pre-schools of international standards in Air Force establishments located around the country was a concept introduced by the SLAF Seva Vanitha Unit.

Commander of the Air Force Air Marshal Kapila Jayampathy graced the occasion as the chief guest. The Chairperson of the SLAF Seva Vanitha Unit, Mrs. Anoma Jayampathy, Chief of Staff of SLAF Air Vice Marshal Sumangala Dias, members of the Air Force Board of Management, Commanding Officer of SLAF Station Colombo Air Commodore GGWTK Gunawardana, Officers, Other Ranks and parents also witnessed the event.
