On Saturday the EDO held a one-day residential workshop for twenty-two teachers who are in charge of the Happy Learning Centres. These teachers were also honoured at the event held Sunday for their devotion and commitment in uplifting the education of affected students.

EDO co-ordinator and a former Director of Education Mr.K.Thangarajah said thirteen Happy Learning Centres are functioning in Muttur east, Eeachilampathu and Pattithidal held by LTTE and nine in Kuchchaveli and villages close to Trincomalee in the government controlled areas. The objective of the project is to provide better education to rural students as schools in their villages are not provided with required education resources, he said.

Mr.R.Thiakalingam, Provincial Education Ministry Secretary who was the chief guest at the event honoured 22 teachers by presenting them with certificates and shields. He also distributed learning materials to HLC students.
