Sinhalese New Year Festivities for Associates at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu

For our associates at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu who come from Tamil and Sinhalese backgrounds, April 14th was the celebration of the New Year which was marked with fun games and great food.

The celebrations took place in Banyan Tree Square, the hot spot for the associates at Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu to hang out and relax. The previous night, all the associates came together in the workshop to finish the décor for the event. Beautiful setups crafted from palm leaves sure made the gathering even more colorful!

The day began with the associates enjoying a special buffet lunch. Everyone was in a joyful mood while they savored the delicious meal that even featured a special grill station manned by our Chefs.

Let the games begin! The activities started out with a light game of musical chairs. Egg tossing games followed, and in the end, the winners from both the games were awarded a special prize.

One of the most cheered on games was the pillow fight which was held a few feet above the ground. Look at our Resident Manager of Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu, Mr. Gafoor, and the Chief Carpenter, Mr. Zahir, battling it out!

More games followed with our associates testing their blind luck with a fun game to “Mark the Eye of the Elephant”, competing to win the sack race, and outdoing each other in trying to crack a clay pot while blindfolded. The New Year celebrations ended with everyone having a fun time with a game of Tug of War. All in all, it was indeed a very Happy New Year and we are glad that our hard working associates had such a wonderful time with the celebrations!
