School re-opens in Thenmaradchchi HSZ after six years

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 October 2005, 10:18 GMT]
Eluthumaduval North Government Tamil Mixed School located in the high security zone of Thenmaradchchi in Jaffna reopened in its own buildings, after six years. Students, teachers and well-wishers led by the Principal entered the school buildings Thursday and cleaned the class-rooms, sources said.

The entire population from Eluthumaduval and Mirusuvil Educated Women Colonization Scheme fled to other safe areas following military operations of the Sri Lanka Army in 1999. The school was also shifted and temporarily combined with another school in the government-controlled area

The SLA following the ceasefire agreement allowed resettlement of displaced in parts of the Mirusuvil Educated Women Colonization Scheme but continued to occupy the school buildings.

Now the SLA has allowed the recommencement of the school in its own buildings due to pressure by resettled families that they needed the school re-opened for their children to study, sources said.
