The ongoing interim school holiday, which was due to come to an end this Monday (20), has been extended by another week.

The Ministry of Education, in a media release, said the decision was reached taking into account the health security of the school children.

Accordingly, schools will be reopened on the 27th of July, however, only for the students in Grade 11, 12 and 13.

Several rounds of discussions have taken place between the authorities of education and health ministries to discuss the matter.

During these meetings, Director General of Health Services Dr. Anil Jasinghe had been of the view that Sri Lanka, at the moment, is not exposed to social transmission of Covid-19 virus.

He has also suggested that it is suitable to reopen schools for students of other grades after the 10th of August.
