Accordingly, in consideration with the guidelines of the health and defense sources, it was decided to grant a vacation for one week from Monday the 13th till Friday the 17th of July for all schools and Pirivenas in the island to observe the would be unhealthy situations within the school system.
The Ministry of Education expects that all private schools, international schools and private tuition classes will also follow this decision.
