Deputy Education Minister T.B. Ekanayake said that holding the term tests in schools that have been flooded was handed over to the principals of the schools.
The term tests were to begin yesterday but schools in several areas in Colombo could not be opened due to flooding. The Education Ministry therefore decided to conduct the term tests today. The Deputy Education Minister said that the responsibility of conducting term tests without causing inconvenience to students has been bestowed on Principals as the schools where the water is still remaining cannot be opened today.
