The Vanni district education head, Mr. Gnanam, deputy head, Mr. Arun Master, political head, Mr. S. Ezhilan, and his deputy, Mr. Senkathir, participated at the meeting.

Observers say that it is significant that the LTTE leaders participated at the meeting in the Sri Lanka Army-controlled area at a time when news reports had said that, in the wake of the power struggle in Colombo between Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister and President, the LTTE was calling its cadres back into areas it controlled.

Senior officials of the Sri Lankan government in Vavuniya, academics, school principals and other prominent figures in the district participated at the meeting.

Mr. K. Bernard, the dean of the College of Education in Poonthoddam, Vavuniya, was elected to head the committee for the advancement of education. Prominent figures from the educational community were appointed as members of the committee.

Subcommittees consisting of five members each were formed for the advancement of technical skills, language skills and athletic skills of the students in the district
