Sampath Daru Daskam has been the banks' most prestigious event conducted on behalf of the children of Team Sampath. Continuing its legacy towards greater heights, "Sampath Daru Daskam 2021" was held on the 30th of November and 19th of December 2021, showcasing the budding talents of these young stars. The competition spanned across two days consisting of a preliminary round and final round. The event was based on five competitions in the areas of art, singing, dancing, speech and instrumental. Each of them was conducted across four age categories. We are pleased to say that even amidst the Covid pandemic, we were able to conduct the event via online platforms. The organizing committee was capable of engaging many famous individuals in the country coupled with their expertise, in order to give a fair and reasonable evaluation for all participants at the end of the event. Each child was given a certificate and a specially designed Daru Daskam t-shirt as a token of appreciation to cherish and remember the talents they showcased during the event. The organizing committee would like to thank the Managing Director- Mr. Nanda Fernando, GCHRO - Mr. Thusitha Nakandala, Human Resources Department, parents and everyone who rendered their support in making this event an immense success.
Sampath Rising Stars, the online workshop on leadership and personality development organized exclusively for the children of the bank's staff members was held on the 10th of July 2021 via online platforms for the first time. A successful event was hosted by the Human Resources Division together with the Sampath Bank Toastmasters Club during the pandemic period, taking it as an opportunity to cultivate young leaders amidst the crisis. These challenging times have shown us every reason as to why the country needs a vibrant set of passionate, young leaders to navigate Sri Lanka's future and we were able to take the initiative in expediting the project. However, many talented and experienced personnel hailing from different fields took part in conducting the workshop by delivering their knowledge to these little kids. Mr. Niranjan De Silva, Ms. Rasini Bandara, Mr. Thineth Jayasuriya, Ms. Yasangi Randeni and Ms. Ayanthi Phillip were our esteemed panel of speakers for Rising Stars 2021. The feedback that the organizing committee received from our team members and their children during the event were highly satisfactory and it motivated us to conduct the workshop on a grand scale. Even though the workshop was conducted via online platforms, we did not fancy leaving the children empty handed as we gifted them with an exclusively designed t-shirt and a certificate to all participants. The organizing committee would like to thank, the Managing Director - Mr. Nanda Fernando, Human Resource Department, the panel of facilitators and our team members for the support rendered in making this event a success.
