Private and international Catholic schools closed till April 20

In keeping with the decision of the Education Ministry, all private and international Catholic schools under the purview of the Archbishop will be closed from tomorrow (13).

The Ministry of Education decided to move forward to the first term school holiday as a measure to prevent parents of students from panicking over the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Speaking at a media briefing held earlier today (12), Minister of Education Dullas Alahapperuma requested private schools and tuition classes to act with sensitivity of the matter as the Ministry cannot interfere with the holidays of these private institutions.

Accordingly, all private and international Catholic schools will be closed from March 13 to April 20.
