Tamil children of the Punthottam Rehabilitation Centre whose fate was earlier decided by the firearm and the cyanide capsule, are now reaping to the maximum the victory of freedom.
211 children of this rehabilitation centre had excelled in the Advanced level examination. There are children who are undergoing rehabilitation after giving themselves up to the army while being in the LTTE outfit for several years.
They sat the Advanced Level examination under lesser facilities. However, a noteworthy feature is the students exploiting the full security and freedom granted to them by the Government and doing well at the examination.
They had displayed their skills in the Science, Maths, Commerce and Arts streams. Parents of these children are upbeat about the outstanding achievements.
