An incident has been reported from a Randeniwala school, involving two students having difficulty in writing letters of the alphabet and not sitting for the scholarship examination following advice given from the class teacher.
The school belonged to the Wellawaya Educational Zone.
The parents of the two students told our news team that the class teacher had asked them not to allow the two students to sit for the scholarship examination as they could not write.
The Examination Commissioner said that all principals had been informed to permit grade 5 students to sit the scholarship examination.
He also said that the principals had been informed that this was compulsory.
