Circular issued on school funds collecting revoked

Minister of Education, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has given instructions to officials to cancel the circular issued regarding schools collecting funds for development.

The Ministry of Education has announced accordingly, the 26/2018 circular has been revoked from today onwards and in its place, the circular 5/2015 issued on the Informal Collection of money in Schools has been empowered.
Although the circular was issued to regulate fund collecting activities of schools, it has been revealed to the Ministry of Education that this enables the accumulation of money improperly without the supervision of the Ministry. Hence the decision was taken to revoke the circular.
