Uniforms not mandatory for primary school children

Education Ministry Secretary Prof. Kapila Perera has said that it is not compulsory for primary school children who are starting school tomorrow (25) to wear school uniforms.

Primary school children are able to wear any suitable clothing, he had added.

He had told the media that the decision was not new and it was mentioned in the circulars issued to schools.

The decision had been taken considering the students whose parents had not been able to  prepare their children's school uniforms, he added.
