Admission to Sri Lankan Government Schools for Children of Migrant Workers
August 29, 2019
The Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) established by Government of Sri Lanka has pointed out the importance of providing the opportunities for Sri Lankan migrant workers returning Sri Lanka after completion of their overseas employments with their children to enroll their children to the Government schools in Sri Lanka to continue studies in English medium.
In this regard, the Bureau of Foreign Employment of Sri Lanka, the institution coming under the purview of the Ministry of Telecommunications, Foreign Employment and Sports of Sri Lanka is now in the process of finding the actual requirement to develop required infrastructure and to start Englishmedium classes for the children of migrant workers to continue their studies in the Government schools as requested by the Ministry of Higher Education of Sri Lanka.
Therefore, the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment has sought the assistance of Sri Lankan Missions/ Posts overseas to collect information of migrant worker’s children who are expected to be enrolled into the Government schools in Sri Lanka to continue their studies in English medium during the next two years.
Therefore, the High Commission of Sri Lanka in Canberra requests the Sri Lankan migrant workers in Australia who are planning to return to Sri Lanka with their children to submit information on their children ( including the full name of the student, district and grade etc.) who are expected to be enrolled into Government schools in Sri Lanka to continue their studies in English medium.
Further information in this regard could be obtained from this Mission
