Number of National Schools to be increased to 1,000

The Cabinet of Ministers approved to increase the number of National schools in the island to 1,000, covering all District Secretariats.

The proposal was made by Education Minister Prof G L Pieris.

Accordingly, the program is planned to be implemented in three phases and the Education Minister presented a proposal to develop one selected Provincial Council school as a National School in each of the 123 Divisional Secretariat Divisions in which there are no National Schools under the first phase of the project.

Another 673 schools selected on the basis of identified criteria as national schools are scheduled to be upgraded under the second phase and it is also expected to uplift the standard of existing 373 National Schools under the third phase of the project.

Policy approval had been granted by the Cabinet of Ministers on December 10th last year to implement an appropriate programme to establish 1000 new National Schools covering all Divisional Secretariats.
