Governor participates in English Language Day of Jaffna Hindu Primary School

English Language Day of Jaffna Hindu Primary School was held on 23rd October 2018. Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray participated as Chief Guest. The principal of the school N.Mahendrarajah presided over the event.

In his address Governor said that teachers need to facilitate their teaching system to learn English language in a simple way. When we start to learn Tamil or Sinhala we do not use grammar pattern.  We read and write after learning small sentences in the speech case. Similarly, if you teach to speak first in English then it is easier to read and write. Then student easily learn English.

Governor honoured Master M.Thigalolibavan, the student of Jaffna Hindu Primary School who became island first in Tamil Medium Grade V scholarship examination. A shield was presented by Governor to Master P.Mathulan who won third prize in recitation which was held at National Level English Language Day competition.

Governor also honoured other winners with prizes and certificates.
