TRO Trincomalee district project officer Mr.V.Kalaivarnan presided.

Mr.Thavanathan inaugurated the event by lighting the traditional oil lamp. Pre-school teachers of all ethnic groups from the education zones of Trincomalee and Kantalai participated.

Mr.Thavanathan said pre-school teachers who have been given the task of moulding a new generation with noble qualities are a neglected lot in the country. "They have not been provided with a fixed salary scale and other benefits enjoyed other categories of teachers," said Mr.Thavanathan.
