Language Class for School Leavers Commenced
[Updated :: 2010-11-22
Under the Civil Military Coordination activities being conducted
by Security Forces Headquarters-Jaffna (SF-J) for the benefit of
Jaffna populace, a Sinhala language course for school leavers, government
and private sector employees was started by the 51 Division from
6th November 2010.
The course was organized by the 513 Brigade in Manipay at the request
of Tamil youths yearning to learn Sinhala which helps them to overcome
the communication barrier with brother community. Necessity for
learning Sinhala language has also arisen since they meet more friends
at Universities here and in Colombo, to interact with people on
trips to the north from the south and to be more close to security
forces personnel committed to promote wellbeing of Jaffna civilians
through various welfare activities.
Classes are conducted free of charge every Saturday from 2.00 p.m.
to 4.00 p.m. at Manipay Ladies’ College by Prof. S. Leelakrishnan
(JP) of Jaffna, a renowned lecturer of Sinhala and English.
Certificates will be issued to all participants who show satisfactory
performances at the end-of-course test.
The first course comprises 100 young men and women.
