Principal Mr.C.V.Perambalam presided. The Divisional Education Officer Mr.V.Ganesharaja participated as the special guest.
Mr. Adaikalanathan further said the government is now engaged in peace talks with the LTTE due to the pressure exerted on it by the international community. "However we should thank the Prime Minister for showing keen interest in implementing the ceasefire agreement amid many obstacles. Also we should thank the LTTE for its commitment and dedication shown in taking forward the peace process in a firm footing", said Mr.Adaikalanathan.
"Our students faced many hardships in the war situation in pursuing education. Under the present peace environment students could continue their education without much difficulties. Therefore I appeal that parents and students should use this opportunity to develop their education", said Mr.Selvam Adaikalanathan.
