A derogatory posting on Face Book regarding the principal of a school in Nawalapitiya had caused her to fall sick resulting in her having to be admitted to the hospital. Soon after this incident, a group of persons had called over at the school and assaulted another teacher, resulting in that teacher too having to seek medical attention. Hearing of the two incidents the parents and students of the school had decided to stage a protest in the Nawalapitiya town.

 

This incident had allegedly taken place over a dispute which had arisen over the Sunday School Classes that was being conducted at the church near the school. Nawalapitiya police had commenced investigations into the cause of the dispute.

 

The police, along with the school development society had summoned a meeting of the students and their parents on Wednesday (19).

 

It was revealed that when the principal arrived at the school she had been shocked with the posting that she had seen on Face Book and she had fallen unconscious. As the term tests were in progress this scene created much tension among the school authorities.

 

Meanwhile the teacher, who had been attacked later on, had said that a group of outsiders had entered the school premises and had demanded the keys of the classrooms from her. When she requested them to wait for the arrival of the principal, they had scolded and then assaulted her.

 

The Zonal Director of Education of Gampola, Ananda Premasiri, who visited the scene, had said that instructions had been given to allow several persons to use the class rooms, but in the meantime a separate group had entered the school and created this ugly scene. (Suranga Rajanayake)

    Thug culture is taking over every sphere of life and activities in Sri Lanka. The law enforcement authorities and government are turning a blind eye, without attempting to stop this.I may mention that I studied in this School 60 years ago and it was then one of the top schools in Kandy District. Children from Kandy, Gampola and on the Up-country line from as far as Haputale attended this School.
