Schools in the North closed on the directive of Provincial education Minister
Our correspondents stated that several schools in the Northern Province have been closed today following a Circular issued by the Provincial education Ministry.
A Provincial Ministry Secretary has informed schools to close their doors, in fear of potential tension amongst students following yesterdays suicide incident. The victim had taken his life by jumping in front of a moving train.
Our correspondent also said that another reason to close schools today is because of Mahaviru Day commemorative events that might be taking place.
