    preparing the next generation, hopefully with truths!

    Retired Teacher Monday, 15 November 2010 05:51 PM

    Wonder if any schools will have the courage to say that they will buy all the Saturday newspapers, promise them in the library on Monday, and go ahead with useful work on Friday?

    Retired Teacher Monday, 15 November 2010 05:54 PM

    What, are all private and "international schools" also going to be subservient?

    Siri Lanka Monday, 15 November 2010 06:30 PM

    Ideal medicine for stupid Sri Lankans....

    Moda Api.... Monday, 15 November 2010 06:31 PM

    Good Move... I suspect our King will loose a few thousand votes by this....

    Cynthia Pietersz Tuesday, 16 November 2010 07:24 AM

    Everyone should stop their work, stand still, no movement of vehicles/ trains and listen to this wonderful president talking.

    Hash Monday, 15 November 2010 07:05 PM

    Its worth of listening to a lecture than listening to selfish political meetings because it doesnt help the students at all other then getting into trouble.

    Dave Richards Monday, 15 November 2010 10:01 AM

    Sorry situation. The kids first had no school due to flooding, then due to political activities. Now they are forced to listen political speeches.

    Rajitha Monday, 15 November 2010 10:06 AM

    please keep the kids out of politics. they should be listening to their teachers lecturing differential equations and electromagnetic theory not some politician speaking useless stuff

    student Monday, 15 November 2010 09:50 PM

    I wish a school holiday on that day....!

    Saradial Monday, 15 November 2010 10:20 AM

    Why should they worst the their time?

    Kamalanath Monday, 15 November 2010 10:24 AM

    Absurd thinking, taking politics into schools as well. They will be not be second to SL universities.

    Atha Katha Monday, 15 November 2010 10:27 AM

    I don't think school children should be involved in this. We should protect them from today's no good politics. :-(

    Lakmal Monday, 15 November 2010 10:28 AM

    Why government always try to disturb to school education. Earlier announced close all schools in Colombo region on 19th and now announce hear president speech, Why they wasting their time. May be gvt try to brain wash kids head.

    Modawansa Monday, 15 November 2010 10:28 AM

    What is wrong with this country.Where are we heading?Please allow the younger genaration to be in Peace without politicising them.

    ff Monday, 15 November 2010 10:29 AM

    Let children learn, not from politiccas.

    Chaminda Monday, 15 November 2010 10:31 AM

    Feel sorry for the School Children- having been forced to hear a boring speech which would just be praising the speaker!

    Sandya Tuesday, 16 November 2010 08:10 AM

    I think the students should here the speeches of the great leaders. Our President is a great leader and so we don' t want to wait until they passedaway to here their great thoughts.

    Dr Merv The Silly Monday, 15 November 2010 10:33 AM

    Only if we send the kids to school on that day.
    I am not for forced feeding.

    asoka abeywardena Monday, 15 November 2010 10:36 AM

    for what...to ask not to eat buns and donuts...?

    sarath Monday, 15 November 2010 10:46 AM

    Politics to school, what a disaster

    TMA Tuesday, 16 November 2010 08:40 AM

    No he'll use them 2 develop his family

    jag Monday, 15 November 2010 10:48 AM

    Chutiy Monday, 15 November 2010 10:53 AM

    What a Joke? whats wrong with MR?

    Ramzeel Monday, 15 November 2010 10:54 AM

    Oh Bandula, let the children learn something worthwhile than listening to the speech of the Poliical leader.

    Brainwash Monday, 15 November 2010 10:55 AM

    Percy Mandawala Monday, 15 November 2010 11:10 AM

    Do not spoil the children

    malithlk Monday, 15 November 2010 11:12 AM

    Wasting school children time and doing politics in school.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 15 November 2010 11:24 AM

    His Master's Voice ? School children should be kept away from listening to "Pampori"

    Aiyo Silva Monday, 15 November 2010 11:26 AM

    As if the school children will think otherwise about the current situation and the government...
    Waste of students'time.

    Kithul Ramba Tuesday, 16 November 2010 03:23 PM

    Hope the children won't fall a sleep.

    K.PARAMANATHAN Monday, 15 November 2010 11:28 AM

    Top Sri Lankan Monday, 15 November 2010 11:29 AM

    Good Marketer, different people have different talent and MR has some of them, hope he will use them to develop this country.

    Smart Aleck Monday, 15 November 2010 11:40 AM

    More likely to politically brainwash the children and produce more Uduls.

    srinath gunaratne Monday, 15 November 2010 11:48 AM

    Where are we heading and what is our media and opposition doing ?

    impartial Monday, 15 November 2010 11:52 AM

    Loki Monday, 15 November 2010 11:56 AM

    Mr.Sherlock Monday, 15 November 2010 11:59 AM

    yeh, right... without sitting for exams that day, listen to the same old preach...
    Childern are sent to school to study, not to listen to political speeches...

    TMA Monday, 15 November 2010 11:59 AM

    Tharaka Chanaka Monday, 15 November 2010 12:13 PM

    People have the right to listen if they want...this includes children too

    spark Monday, 15 November 2010 12:16 PM

    Broadcasting of Pirith in the morning needs to banned and speeches by beloved Mahinda must be played early mornings.

    rosh Monday, 15 November 2010 02:16 PM

    I think the country is becoming another North Korea where Kim Jong Ill rran his hermit kingdom. This is a bad sign. Im fully hearted supporter of MR but this is a VERY VERY BAD MOVE

    tom Monday, 15 November 2010 02:17 PM

    Game Kolla Monday, 15 November 2010 02:24 PM

    Please allow children to carry out their studies without any political interference.

    Kadira Monday, 15 November 2010 02:24 PM

    The result of a tuition master trying to be an administrator.

    sangeetha Monday, 15 November 2010 02:25 PM

    Brainwashing! what more than a brainwashed generation to support the dynasty. Please leave the school children alone.
    This is not a dictatorship.

    Lakmal Monday, 15 November 2010 02:25 PM

    Better to watch "Baba Lanthaya" than this

    Modawasage_Balaputha Monday, 15 November 2010 02:35 PM

    Are we running short of people who will listen to the President's speech?
    We could also request the physically handicaped(Deaf) people to listen to him.

    students Tuesday, 16 November 2010 06:13 AM

    hey can you give all the schools a holiday if you want them to listen to your speech please.

    Lanka Law Graduates Monday, 15 November 2010 03:16 PM

    Students going to Parliament to learn "special language".

    rif Monday, 15 November 2010 03:57 PM

    rif Monday, 15 November 2010 04:00 PM

    sir Lanka=> Myanmar=> (Ceylon)

    Ismail Monday, 15 November 2010 04:01 PM

    YES, do not spoil our children
    @game Kolla: Studies are more !mportant than politics.
    I hope DM publishes a copy of his speech or whatever.......
    Listening is a waste of time. Anyway, was that an advertisement?
    Just imagine selling copies of his speeches to school children!

    Suthan Monday, 15 November 2010 04:05 PM

    then they have to hear from Mervin

    fxt Tuesday, 16 November 2010 12:23 PM

    Unlike the big businessmen and others who will call it a great speech, school children will call a spade a spade. Let them listen to all the great things he is said to have done and come to their own conclusions.

    Upul Gunawardena Monday, 15 November 2010 04:33 PM

    We can see the problems we have in the Universities because of politics. Please do not bring politics in to schools. Let the children study their curriculum at schools.

    steve Monday, 15 November 2010 04:47 PM

    Better introduce "Mahinde Chinthanaya" into the curriculum :)

    malkanthi Tuesday, 16 November 2010 06:49 AM

    Yes you can anticipate that too.

    Neomal Monday, 15 November 2010 09:37 AM

    Why? Are we running short of people who will listen to the President's speech?

    Shan Monday, 15 November 2010 05:03 PM

    please keep kids away from politics.

    sf Monday, 15 November 2010 05:03 PM

    the latest addition to school syllabus - Listening to MR
    So now schools are also politicized. Anything left?
