Governor participates at Annual Prize Day of Vasavilan Velupillai Vidyalayam

The annual prize day of Vasavilan Velupillai Vidyalayam was held on 29th November 2018. Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray graced the event as Chief Guest.


Speaking at the event, the Governor said that it is necessary to implement some legal plans beyond the provincial structures to develop the education in the Northern Province and that he is paying special attention to it.

Governor also said that the law in other provinces for the education is not enough here. There is a need to implement special legal plans for this area which was affected by the last 30 years of war. We all need to discuss together to regulate the education sector.

Jaffna's pride is education which should be improved by the teachers here. They should not work only for salary and they should serve above that. The teachers should have a vision and show love and mercy on the students. They should be a parent for them. Many people, like Velupillai Sir, who started this school, have served in the past with social concern.

The authorities should take serious decisions in order to improve education here. If anyone makes a mistake, first he or she should be given an advice and then issue a written order and a punishment for those who ignore these.

The principal of the school Jude Mariyaratnam hosted this event. Chairman of Vali-North Pradeshiya Sabha S.Sugirthan, Secretary of Education Ministry S.Sathiyaseelan, Divisional Secretary Sivasri, Deputy Director of Education Thavamanokaran and several others also participated in this event.
