Poson programmes in schools

Kurunegala District UNP Parliamentarian and Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam in a special circular to all school heads of Buddhist schools countrywide has informed them that meaningful religious programmes such as meditation and sil programmes must be organised for Poson Poya, which falls on June 16.

To inculcate noble human values in the minds of students, this programme has to be organised in collaboration with the Buddhist clergy and lay scholars, parents and past pupils.

Meanwhile, R.M. Jayaweera, a senior school principal of a national school in Kurunegala told the Daily News yesterday that about 450,000 students and 24,000 teachers in the Kurunegala and Puttalam districts would take part in Poson Poya programmes.
