The ongoing interim school holiday has been extended by another week and the schools will be reopened for Grade 11, 12 and 13 students on July 27, the Education Ministry said today

The week long school holiday declared during a sudden spike of Covid-19 transmissions earlier this month.

The Director General of Health meanwhile reiterates that at present there is no possibility for the social transmission of Covid-19 within the community.

However, as three students have tested positive for the coronavirus, while a further 200 students and teachers in five districts are in quarantine, the Minstry has decided to extend the special holiday period in order to safeguard students and teachers. 

"As three students have tested positive for Covid-19 and the test results of a further 200 students and teachers are pending, the Ministry has decided that the most appropriate decision at this time would be to extend the holiday until July 27," the Ministry in a statement said.

The ministry also said that new dates for the GCE A/L and Grade 5th Scholarship examinations will be announced on Monday (20).

Meanwhile, schools in the Rajanganaya and Welikanda educational divisions will not be reopened before the 10th of August, it said.

    But why? The Great Dictator, the war criminal Silva and their mouthpipe Dr Anil told that there is no danger of an infection inside the society.

    Has the MOE made any confirmation as to when school is expected to be opened for the other grades from 3 to 9?

    How is it possible that 3 children have been infected? Probably a miracle like the Immaculate Conception. When the ruling mafia clan and his henchmen say there are no infections within society, then there are none.

    Schools closed but the tuition class Mafia are allowed to stay open. Friends of Politicians?
