Mr.R.Thiakalingam, North East Provincial Education Ministry Secretary Wednesday handed over appointment letters absorbing 203 part time English teachers comprising all three communities out of 860 into the Class 3 Grade 2 of the Ceylon Teachers Service. They have been serving in northeast schools for several years.

The event was held at the provincial ministry auditorium with Mr.Thiyakalingam in the chair. Mr.M.K.M.Haniffa and Mr.Dayananda Jayaweera, Senior Assistant Secretaries of the Provincial Education Ministry, Mr.K.Saravanapavan, Director of Education and Mr.S.Krishnakumar, Assistant Director of Education participated.

Mr.Thiagalinkam reminded the audience the protests and demonstrations organized by the part Time English Teachers Association in Trincomalee and various parts of the province demanding permanency in the past. These teachers are made permanent at a time when English language is playing vital role as link language to promote better understandings between communities.

Those part time teachers who received maximum one thousand five hundred rupees per month on contract basis are made permanent with a decent salary, he added.

Mr.S.Gnanakaran, President of the North East Part Time English Teachers Association thanked the Provincial Secretary and his staff, Northeast parliamentarians, Ceylon Tamil Teachers Union and other organizations for supporting their struggle in this regard.
