Piyawara’s first-ever model Pre-School in Kilinochchi was recently opened by Hon. Minister Tissa Karaliadda, Minister of Child Development and Hon. Namal Rajapaksa, MP. This school can accommodate 80 children and will be used as a model training centre by the Ministry of Education of the Northern Province. After three decades of conflict, this is the very first time that these little children have got a fully-fledged facility that consists of four classrooms, a teacher’s office, storage, play area, education equipment, and, trained teachers. This is the 37th Pre-School under the ‘Piyawara’ initiative. Its total cost of Rs. 12 million was funded by a donation made by The Matri Trust, Edinburgh, UK.
