Our school has reached over the National level in ICT O/L results.
We have personally three websites for the school. http://www.methodistcc.sch.lk , http://www.evillage.lk/hakmana, http://www.hakmana.org. All the web sites are made with joomla. We are the first school used joomla.
But, Our current computer laboratory has been implemented in 2003. The performance of computers has worn out at present. UPSs and monitors are not working thoroughly.

Concerning above information, If your institute has old computers (can be used), please provide us a couple of computer. It will be great helpful to students and community.
