Colombo, July 4: Amid fuel crisis, the Sri Lankan Education Ministry declared a holiday week from July 4 for all government and state-approved private schools.

The Sri Lankan Education Minister said that in the next vacation term, the school will cover the syllabus. Earlier on June 18, the Sri Lankan government had announced to shut down all schools for a week.

Sri Lanka Education Ministry Secretary Nihal Ranasinghe asked schools to conduct online classes and said that the schools at the divisional level will be allowed to conduct classes with less number of students under conditions where transportation difficulties do not affect the students, teachers and principals.

The food inflation in May stood at 57.4 per cent, while shortages of key food items, as well as fuel for cooking, transport, and industry, remain widespread, with ongoing daily power outages.
