Auditorium of Vembady Girls’ High School and the Weerasingham Hall in Jaffna inundated with enthusiastic students on Saturday (13.11.2010) when the 51 Division of Security Forces Jaffna (SF-J) organized education seminars aiming the G.C.E. O/L examination 2010.

The participation of students witnessed today was the highest in the Jaffna education history since it was the first time that such a programme was organized for O/L candidates in Jaffna. In conformity with the government’s agenda to secure equal rights of education for all irrespective of their religion and ethnicity, SF-J on auspices of the Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe arranged this two-day seminar to enhance the knowledge of O/L students especially on Science and Mathematics while techniques and methodology to be adopted in answering the question papers were also taught.

Since the number of participants rose nearly to 2000, SF-J had to arrange the Vembady College auditorium and the Weerasingham Hall to accommodate them all. Commander SF-J attended the inauguration ceremony at the Weerasingham Hall as Chief Guest. He also visited the Vembady College and encouraged students distributing tutorial notes among the participants. He wished all students good luck in their future challenge and mentioned that SF-J is anxiously waiting to see the island’s best results in the examination from Jaffna.

Experienced teachers in the peninsula had been invited to conduct lectures and study materials printed for all participants by the Army were distributed free of charge. The 51Division commanded by Maj. Gen. Janaka Walgama provided lunch to all students at the both centres.

Security Forces Headquarters Jaffna by organizing these types of education programmes intends to promote education in the peninsula so that future generation there would assist the country to emerge as the “Miracle of Asia” on the concept of “One Country and One Nation”. With ushering of peace to the country last year, O/L results in Jaffna proved comparatively better.

Security Forces Headquarters-Jaffna has already launched a number of projects to uplift the education standard of Jaffna.
