The schoolgirl who stated that she was expelled due to an HIV AIDS fear, held a protest opposite the Gampaha Zonal Education office from March 24.

The girl, who attended the Gampaha - Ganemulla Kudabollatha Sri Sumangala Vidyalaya, claims she was stopped from attending school from February 20 due to the actions of education authorities.

Incidentally, the girl who was due to sit for the Grade 5 scholarship examination this year, had excelled in her studies coming first in the class from Grade 1 to Grade 5 continuously. This girl who lost her opportunity to attend school in February last year too was given the opportunity to restart schooling due to the intervention of the Human Rights Commission.

According to the girl’s guardians, although the principal had promised the opportunity for her to attend school without hindrance, he had allegedly prevented her from attending school from March 20, citing the incidents which occurred last year.

The guardians alleged that even though the principal was summoned to the Zonal Office for a discussion on the matter, he had arrived at the Zonal Office and left unnoticed after leaving behind his motorcycle.
