SF-J Hands Over Vasavilan M.M.V. to Education Dept.
[Updated :: 2010-09-29 15:10:20 Hours]

Disturbances to Education in certain parts of the peninsula which had been held back for years due to LTTE activities is being rectified once again by the government under the Uthuru Wasanthaya (Wadakkai Wasantham) Northern development programme providing more and more facilities to schools and students in Jaffna.

At the same time, Security Forces Headquarters Jaffna (SF-J), which has undertaken a number of projects to promote the standard of education in Jaffna by way of awarding scholarships and donating school items to children, released the Vasavilan Central College at Kadduwan in the Palaly High Security Zone to Education Department on Tuesday (28.09.2010). The school may commence giving its formal education as soon as shifting of necessary equipment and teaching aid is completed.

The school was once used by the LTTE to direct attacks on the Security Forces and it was a grave need for the Army to eliminate that threat since it located within the presence of the Palaly Headquarters.

Since then the school remained abandoned due to threat of LTTE land mines. Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe addressing the gathering of distinguished guests, school children, teachers and parents revealed that due to accelerated de-mining process within the school premises, Security Forces were able to hand over the school for the use of thousands of children from neighbouring areas. Amidst the applause of the all present, he further added that Headquarters SF-J will completely renovate one building in dilapidating condition at SF-Js expense as a token of goodwill. Commander SF-J assured all assistance to uplift education of students in future including making a playground for students for their sports activities.

Hon. Minister of Traditional Industries and Small Enterprises Mr. Douglas Devananda who was the Chief Guest of the occasion, Governor Northern Province Maj. Gen. (Retd) G.A. Chandrasiri and District Secretary Jaffna Mrs. Emelda Sukumar distributed some books among students and teachers and furniture to the school.

Senior officers of the Administrative and Education Department, Senior Army Officers and a large crowd were present.
