Schools in Anuradhapura and Mihintale closed for Poson

Jun 13, 2011 12:12:23 PM - itnnews.lk

20 Schools in Anuradhapura and Mihintale will be temporarily closed for the Poson Festival. The North Central Provincial Council has decided to keep these schools within the Anuradhapura and Mihintale Sacred Cities closed with effect from today until Wednesday the 17th. Chief Minister Berty Premalal Dissanayake said they took this decision as lodging facilities had to be extended to officers who are providing security in these Cities. He added that classes will be conducted on additional days to cover up for the loss.
