13th, declared a holiday for Tamil schools in Central Province



A holiday has been declared on Nov. 13 for Tamil medium schools in Central Province.

The holiday has been declared in lieu of the Deepavali festival, which is celebrated on Nov. 12.

The Central Province governor has directed this to the Education Secretary of the province, since students and teachers tend to be absent on the day after the festival.

However, the Governor has stated that an alternative school day must be conducted in the weekend, in exchange for the special holiday.
