New curriculum for school children

Jun 17, 2010 10:56:28 AM - itnnews.lk

It is planned to formulate a new curriculum which would not embarrass school children. Minister Bandula Gunawardena made this reference participating in a function at the Sri Sangamitta Balika Vidyalaya in Colombo.

The Minister pointed out that a girl who had passed the Year Five Scholarship Examination had queried from his father whether she has to sit this particular examination even in the other world. The Minister said he wished to remind on this occasion that he had sought the advice of academics to prepare a new curriculum which could suit the mental conditions and the age of the students without embarrassing or burdening the students into difficulty.

The ceremony was organized on behalf of the receipt of the ISO 9001/2008. The Education Ministry said this is the first time that a Government school had received such a certificate.
