[Updated :: 2011-01-14 10:14:48 Hours]

While rapid change is taking place in Jaffna under the government-projected northern development programme “Uthuru Wasanthaya”, education of Jaffna students is considered prominent. Security Forces Headquarters – Jaffna (SF-J) in support of the government’s programme has taken a number of steps to promote education in the peninsula. Releasing schools within the Palaly restricted zone, reconstructing dilapidated school buildings and launching scholarship programmes are among them.

Meanwhile, some private-owned institutions have come forward to lend a helping hand to Security Forces and civil administrative authorities of Jaffna in this endeavor.

A pre-school building constructed by one such donor institute, Hemas Holdings PLC in Colombo was handed over to the Jaffna Municipal Council on 11th January to promote pre-school education in Jaffna. The Company a few months ago purchased the land on the Sangiliyan road for this purpose before constructing the building equipped with furniture, teaching and learning aid spending millions. The new building accommodates hundreds of children in seven classrooms. The premises consists of a Kovil, a children park and an open theatre.

Hon Minister of Child Development and Women’s Affairs Tissa Karaliyadda declared open the new pre-school in the presence of a large crowd of kids, parents and distinguished gathering including Hon Minister of Traditional Industries and Small Enterprise Douglas Devananda, Deputy Director Hemas Holdings PLC Mrs. Mallika Perera, Chief Coordinator of Civil Affairs SF-J Colonel Wimalanatha Perera and Mayoress Jaffna Mrs. Y. Pathgunarasa.
