    In that case many School Principals around the Island have to be transfered.

    He did not have the caliber to head this school. Surprised how he survived for 10 long year at RC..

    Good move by the minister. However the crooks whithin the school, the SDS, in the RCU are still at large. They will gather arround the new Principal and try to continue their business.

    Kinswood Principal was trfrd for same reason - RC principal who was conducting a class on the sly without the knowledge of the education ministry was caught red handed , and he had not informed the education ministry of that. Moreover he had collected prohibitive fees to admit students to that class.

    Bad example for the students!!!! Education system must be fully overhauled to save the future of Srilanka

    Reading the above comments make me wonder how a principal of a reputable school with high praise, suddenly get transferred without an explanation. Does anyone know the reason for this investigation?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 12 January 2016 10:40 AM

    Is it a punishment transfer or a promotion?

    thakshila Wednesday, 13 January 2016 02:40 PM

    these are political revenges.
