To be seen, to be heard, to be the best……
Adding yet another achievement to its long list of rapidly growing laurels, Horizon College International was able to emerge victorious at the Inter- school speech competition 2015 organized by Learnium International School. Two very talented orators from Grade 10, DhanushkaWijethileke and Ruqyyaha Deane participated in the speech competition organized for the third consecutive year by the English Department of Learnium International. At the event which was held on the 27th of January 2015 at the LIS auditorium, Ruqyyaha Deane emerged second runner up having captivated the audience with her eloquent speech on the topic “Cultural values are of paramount importance in making people who they are”.
