Education Ministry issued guidelines on school functions for next week


The Ministry of Education has issued several guidelines for the function of schools from 20 June to 24 June.

All schools within the Colombo zone and suburbs and schools located in the main cities of other provinces will remain closed next week. Meanwhile, provincial education authorities are allowed to decide on how academic activities at schools in other areas are carried out during this period.

Schools with a smaller crowd of students can function if the students and teachers are able to attend without facing any transport difficulties.

Considering the number of students and teachers in schools and the ability to conduct classes with a significant number in attendance, discussions should be held with the Zonal Education Director to continue class functions.

Students who are unable to attend school to be granted the opportunity to join online learning.
