Free tuition by retired teachers
A special voluntary project has been implemented by Kurunegala
District Retired Govt. School Teachers' Association to assist low-income
students of the Kurunegala District who sit for the G.C.E.(O/L)
Examination 2013 in December.
Accordingly, main subjects such as Mathematics, English, Science,
History, Religions, English Literature and Arts would be taught free to
them. About 5,000 students would benefit from this program and 120
experienced and retired teachers would offer their services and
expertise at week-ends and during school vacations to enable these
students to get better results at the exam.
The former Divisional Secretary for Bingiriya W.E. Jayathilake told
Sunday Observer that Bingiriya Government. Pensioners' Association has
consented in providing a donation of Rs. 500,000 to print model question
papers, and to get necessary stationery for this purpose.
"Free tea and refreshments too would be offered to students who
attend these extra classes", Jayathilake said.
