The Matara Branch of the Java Institute for Advanced Technology organised a Carrom Tournament on 18th of December 2013 for all the students of the Institute.
The main objective of this event was to increase the thinking power of the students and teach them how to arrive at quick decisions at suitable times in order to develop the discipline and behaviour rapidly. The Matara Branch was the pioneer of introducing a carrom tournament to the Java Institute network and this particular event is organised annually.
Even though only minimum facilities for practices were available, our students were at a very satisfactory level. The Carrom Championship of 2013, the Kurunegala Branch, won the championship and the Matara Branch were the runners-up. However, due to this event all students cooperated with each other and the relationship between students of different branches was strengthened. Moreover, this event was a valuable event as it provided a unique bond between the Institute and the students in order to give them a really great experience during studies.
