The third school term commenced today. A notable feature is the launching of dengue eradication programmes before the re-opening.
Minister Bandula Gunawardena who participated in the dengue eradication programme held at the Homagama President’s College said the programme should be considered as important. The schools were informed through a circular to carryout a dengue eradication programme yesterday. Accordingly Shramadana Campaigns were held with the participation of Principals, teachers and parents.
Earlier an Education Ministry circular had instructed the schools to carryout dengue eradication programmes with the participation of teachers, old pupils, parents and voluntary organizations. Accordingly dengue eradication programmes were carried out in schools throughout yesterday.
