Back to school on Monday

All schools except Catholic schools will re-open on Monday, 6 May, as previously re-scheduled, Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said.

Tight security measures will be in place to ensure the safety of all students, with the cooperation of school development committees, the Minister said, adding that discussions were also held with public transport unions on the safety of students commuting to school.

A decision on Catholic schools will be taken after consultations with Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, he added.
