Special dress for pregnant teachers

Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has decided to introduce a special dress suitable to be worn by pregnant teachers.

Arrangements in this regard have already been made while the circular is expected to be released within the next few days including the design f the proposed maternity dress for teachers.

According to the Education Ministry, pregnant teachers face difficulty when having to wear the saree. Hence the minister had issued directives to introduce a suitable dress instead.

The minister pointed out that it was ironic that while every other profession has facilities for pregnant women to attend to their work in lighter comfortable clothing while teachers have not been availed that facility. Hence, the minister advised relevant authorities to accelerate the process of providing teachers with comfortable attire during pregnancy.
