The first one-day workshop will be held on September 27 at Kinniya Central College for principals serving in schools in the Kinniya and Tampalakamam education divisions. The second workshop will be held on September 30 for
principals serving in schools in the Muttur and Eachchilampathu education divisions at Muttur Central College, Mr. Mahalingam said in a circular sent
