All schools in western province to reopen next Monday: education minister
ECONOMYNEXT – All schools in the western province will reopen for all grades next Monday (29), Education Minister Prof G L Peiris said.
The Health Services Director General has given his approval for the decision to reopen all government schools and preschools in the province, Peiris said, claiming that conditions are now favourable for doing so.
The minister said private and international schools may also reopen on March 29, but a decision has yet to be made regarding the reopening of private tutories or “tuition classes” as they’re known. (Colombo/Mar24/2021)
