An awards ceremony for children who showcased their talents at a prayer recital programme, was held at the Masjithul Haq Mosque premises in Nintavur, on Saturday (17).

Students were awarded with certificates and mementos by guests, at the end of the programme.

The organising committee chairman said, “These Makthab programmes are being carried out at all religious centres island-wide. They are being conducted under the guidance of the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama. We have a syllabus which is specially designed to teach children good manners and religious rites. It is necessary, as good manners should be taught at an early age.”
