With those new changes the Career Guidance & Skills Development Society had a successful year of 2010.On the 15th of January 2010, we gave the opportunity to Grade 12 students to participate in the EDEX Exhibition-2010 which was held in BMICH.

Next we made aware of a vacancy at Hanjin Shipping Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. The school leavers who had passed G.C.E.(A/L) in Maths stream and those who are fluent in Spoken and written English with extra-curricular activities.

In the second term we organized a seminar for after O/L students in order to guide them to choose a suitable stream for Advanced level and also to give them a clear idea about the A/L project. The invited Lecturers for his event were Mr. M. L. Priyantha from NAITA and Mr. Bandula Sarath Waduthanthri, a Lecturer from NIE.
