For a world of serenity …
In the midst of the Covid -19 pandemic, Colombo Beacon organized Vaishakhya 2021, an Online Vesak Celebration offering an invaluable opportunity for freshers to take part in club projects.
This became the most significant event launched by Colombo Beacon in 2021 as it paved the way for the freshers to recognize their own capabilities right after the enrollment and created a better platform for them to get along with the Beacon family.
Project Coordinators :Tharushi Illukpitiya and Poornima Dissanayake
The entire programme was divided into three segments.
The first and the most significant part of the Vesak project was releasing the Vesak song.
An open competition was organized for all Beacon members to pen Vesak-themed songs and the best lyrics were selected. Then, the proud Beacon members themselves composed and released the Colombo Beacon Vesak theme song on the Vesak full moon poya day.
