SLA continues to limit number of students into VMMV College in Palaali HSZ

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 12 October 2010, 06:05 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Palaali High Security Zone (HSZ) permitted only three upper grade classes to function in a small section of Vasaavi’laan Maththiya Makaa Viththiyaalayam (Central College) located in Palaali military HSZ in an event Monday when the building was officially handed over to the school administration. Though Sri Lanka government had handed the entire school officially in an event held with much publicity in September, SLA officials had later not allowed the school to reopen claiming that land mines in the location have to be removed. The principal of the school said that so far he has not been informed as to when the other classes would be permitted to attend classes. However, he confirmed that renovation of the school buildings is under way.

Students of grade ten and eleven in VMMV are allowed to attend classes in the school while the rest of the students have to follow classes in the school functioning in a private property in Urumpiraay.

The school caught in Palaali High Security Zone (HSZ) of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) for the last twenty years now functions in a private property in Urumpiraay area since it was forced to displace in 1990 due to SLA offensives. There are 1,200 students in the school.

Meanwhile, SLA officials had told the principal that the de-mining of the area will be completed next year.
