University life is perceived as a door step which a student opens his arms to the outer world. As freshers they enter university and leave as graduates with their heads held high with dignity and capability. Throughout their university life they engage in various activities, curriculum and otherwise.

These said activities enhance their interaction and other qualities which a university student should have, and has been successful throughout the past years. In par with those activities, I would like to propose a new programme to the new entrants of FIT.

The programme is under the FITCOC and gives chance for every student entering the faculty to plant a tree on his/her name. Continuing with his/her degree programme for four years, the tree would grow as the student grows in knowledge and technical expertise. Finally as a graduate from the University of Moratuwa, the same student can witness the tree grown as he has for years.

Such moment would be valuable in various aspects for a student and even for a faculty supporting nature and social responsibility. Even after decades lapse, the tree stands still, resembling the strength of a FIT student in the corporate world after graduation.

My proposal is to hold this ceremony with each and every orientation programme to be held in the future beginning from Batch 9. A suitable place for the programme should be reserved and proper steps should be taken to manage the quantity of the trees.

  • One tree per student or
  • One tree per a group of students

I hope the faculty would give the fullest and heartiest support to inaugurate this programme and continue it for the future.
