Governor felicitates Principals and Teachers

Valikamam Zonal Education Office organized the event of felicitating principals and teachers on 29th November 2018 at Maruthanarmadam RamanathanColllege. Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray graced the event as Chief Guest.


Speaking at the event Governor said that the need has arisen to felicitate teachers and principals who hardly took leaves in the Northern Province. The teachers in Northern Province receive a three-month holiday for marriages and foreign trips. This is where the education of the students is affected. I am also responsible for this situation because I am the person who gives the holiday leave for teachers. The vacation leaves which were approved by principals, Zonal Directors, and Secretary finally send for my approval. I don’t know how they allow these long leaves. I have been exploring in this regard.

When I was the Minister of Education, I conducted similar ceremonies to felicitate the teachers. I honoured them with gold medals. This is our prime duty to appreciate and encourage the workers who rendered the best service. He also said that there is a need to appreciate the teachers who do not take the vacation in the Northern Province.

Provincial Director of Education Mr. S.Uthayakumar, Education Higher Officers and Principals and teachers were present at this event which was held under the chairmanship of Valikamam Zonal Education Director S.Chandrarajah.
