OL classes begin in WP schools

Schools in the Western Province will reopen from today for students in the Ordinary Level classes, Education Minister Prof. G.L.Peiris said.

However, any school belonging to an isolated area will not be opened till the isolation is lifted.

The Minister said the OL examination would be held for eleven days from March 1 as scheduled. He said the decision to re-open schools for OL students was to expedite their lessons which had been interrupted over the past few months.

“The Ministry took this decision after a lengthy discussion with education and health officials. The decision to open schools gradually in the Western Province for other students will be taken considering the situation as of mid next month,” he said.
