As an additional security measure, CCTV cameras will be installed in schools countrywide, Education M inister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam 
said yesterday. 


He told a press conference held yesterday at his residence that CCTV cameras would be provided to leading schools free of charge and that the government would bear the cost of the project. “Parents will not be asked to fund the undertaking,” he said. 


He said the decision to reopen schools on May 6 was taken following consultations with defence authorities including the intelligence agencies.  Accepting that the student turnout was low since May 6, the minister was confident that the turnout would improve. “We expect a better turnout today as the country’s situation has improved,” he said. 


When asked whether term tests and the GCE Advanced Level examination would be held on time, he said decisions with regard to these matters would be taken at a meeting he intends having with t he education authorities and experts today.
