Started at Vasavilan College
[Updated :: 2010-10-12
Central College, a prominent government school, which imparted knowledge
to thousands of students and to teacher trainees who followed In-Service
Training at Kopay Teachers’ College reopened on Monday (11.10.2010).
Formal education system of the school collapsed after the LTTE deployed
its fighting cadres inside school buildings to launch attacks against
Security Forces. However, the area including the school premises
was liberated by the Security Forces in September 1990. The heavily-mined
land remained a part of the Palaly High Security Zone up to 29th
September 2010 until it was handed over to the Education Department
on completion of removal of explosives buried by the LTTE and their
Representing the Commander Security Forces-Jaffna, Commander 515
Brigade Colonel A.G.D.N. Jayasundara attended the ceremonial opening
of academic sessions at school.
Presently 580 boys and 615 girls are attending the College. One
complete building will be refurbished for the students by the Security
Forces Headquarters – Jaffna in near future..
