"Stop terminating service of Pre-school Teachers" - Governor ordered

Governor of Northern Province Reginald Cooray has ordered to stop terminating the services of the pre-school teachers who serve in the pay of Department of Social Security until further notice.


The Governor has advised Major General Nirmal Coswatte, Director General of the Civil Security Department, to allow teachers to work until finding an appropriate solution for this issue by handing over the report to the President of Sri Lanka at the next meeting of the Presidential Secretariat for North East.

Hundreds of pre-school teachers were involved in the protest in front of the Governor's Secretariat on December 26, 2018, demanding for a better solution. They said that over the past 15 years, we had been teaching as pre-school teachers with a salary of 300 rupees to 3 thousand rupees. Since 2012, we have been given 30 thousand rupees salary by the Civil Security Department and continued our service as pre-school teachers. But now our salary was stopped and requested to leave the job. Our future life is now questionable.

The Governor, who received their request letters, promised to speak with the President and give a good solution.
