COLOMBO (News 1st); The Ministry of Education has decided to NOT open schools in the Colombo Zone and City schools across all provinces from 27th June until 1st of July.

The decision has been reached in view of the difficulties faced in fuel distribution.

However, the Education Ministry states that schools not located in cities and rural areas will open as usual if the students and teachers do not face difficulties due to transportation issues.

If such a problem persists, the Ministry has instructed for schools to operate only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays.

Teachers with transportation issues in the said schools should be given flexible timetables by the principal, without penalising their holidays.

Moreover, if any G.C.E. Ordinary Level term examinations have been scheduled to be held from 27th June onwards, they should be postponed for two weeks, the Ministry of Education adds.
