On 20 January 2023, a batch of KDU personnel consisting of 224 trainees and 27 directing staff called on the Sri Lanka Military Academy as a part of their training curriculum. Upon their arrival, they were welcomed at the main entrance of the Academy. Afterwards, they were given a briefing on the Parade Ground, Academy Vision and the War Memorial to which their utmost gratitude was paid by laying a wreath. Then, they watched the SLMA documentary at the Sino-Lanka Friendship Auditorium and visited a few important places of the Academy such as the Academy Museum, Equestrian Section, Polo Ground, Swimming Pool, Officer Cadets’ Mess, Library, Smart Classroom Complex, General Shavendra Silva Block and the Gymnasium where a friendly basketball match between the SLMA and KDU teams demonstrated their sportsmanship. Meanwhile, time and space for an interactive session between the trainees of both institutes were also created to share their experiences during the tea break and lunch at the Officer Cadets’ Mess.
