Education Minister Susil Premajayantha said school holidays will not be given this August.
This is to cover the missed time to complete syllabuses and academic activities. Accordingly, the schools will continue academic activities until the end of November, Premajayantha said.
Meanwhile, the Grade 5 Scholarship Examination is scheduled to be held on 27 November while the G.C.E. Advanced Level Examination is set to be held from 28 November to 23 December.
