Accordingly, the saplings were distributed among Basilica Primary School and Basilica College in Ragama, Neligama Sri Sangamiththa Maha Vidyalaya, St. Joseph's College, St. Joseph's College for Deaf in Ragama and De Mazenod College in Kandana. Further, Navy’s landscaping teams imparted their expertise for proper plantation of those saplings.
