Pre-school teachers play vital role

Pre-school teachers with their awards

Pre-school teachers play a vital role in molding the characters of children, Matale District Additional Secretary Ishan Wijethilaka said.

He made this observation at a ceremony at Matale District Secretariat auditorium where the service of pre-school teachers were honoured.

Meanwhile, the best pre-school was also selected at the event.

Wijethilaka said under the present situation, the pre-school teachers have become guides of children because they are building the foundation of a child's primary education. "Therefore, we should appreciate their services," he said.

The Additional District Secretary said, today the majority of parents are always busy to keep their home fires burning. This has created a situation where there is not enough time for them to take care of their children and it has also become problematic for them. But, this responsibility has been taken over by pre-school teachers.

The prevailing situation has made the services of pre-school teachers commendable, Wijethilaka said.

The Naula Rantharu Pre-school was adjudged the best pre-school while Matale little Range and Rattota St. Francis pre-schools were placed second and third respectively.

About 67 pre-schools in the district participated at the ceremony.
