[TamilNet, Wednesday, 18 February 2009, 16:49 GMT]
Students of the civilians brought from Liberation Tigers held territories and held in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) internment camp in Mirusuvil are to attend a temporary school in Kodikaamam, taken to the school and back to their camp each school day by SLA soldiers, Thenmaraadchi education office sources said. Students held in similar detention camps in Koappaay Government Teachers’ Training College and in Kurunakar are to attend school under SLA surveillance, the sources added.

UNICEF has allocated Rs. 2.5 million in the first stage to set up five temporary structures in the private land next to Kodikaamam Government Tamil Mixed School (GTMS) where refugees registered under Mirusuvil SLA detention camp are housed.

The site of the new school is located along A9 road.

The students of Kodikaamam GTMS, numbering 200, are presently attending classes conducted in private houses in Kodikaamam.

The 365 students studying grades 1 to 13 from the Mirusuvil detention camp will attend the newly constructed school along with the above 200 Kodikaamam GTMS students, the sources said.

Arrangements are being made to enable students held in Koappaay detention camp to attend Koappaay Maha Viththiyalayam located in front of their detention camp.

The students in the Kurunakar detention camp housed in the old Jaffna High Court building complex will be attending St. Charles school in Kurunakar.

The students in the above detention camps too will go to school and return to camp under SLA control.

Sri Lanka government has planned to keep the children of the refugees under their permanent control as they do with their parents now, source in Jaffna said.
