    Parents, if you want to admit your child in a good school, just send out a rumor that the child has HIV, the rest will take care of itself. This is Sri Lanka southern ignorance at its best.

    I think we should admit the child where he has first applied admission as it'll be close to his home. Other schools may be better, but the child should be at ease and be with his mother.

    Trinity will admit that child because the new principal being an Englishman will show compassion.
