The Minister of Education Akila Viraj Kariyawasam said that information has been received exposing an additional 25 schools which have admitted year 1 students disregarding relevant Circulars.

He said that steps have been taken to initiate investigations swiftly against the relevant school authorities.

Following the complaints received by the Ministry, the admission of students to Year 1 at Colombo’s Royal College has already been suspended.
