Students at Meepawala Amarasuriya MV, Galle have launched a protest campaign against the appointment of a principal to the school though the incumbent remained at his post. About 1,000 students and their parents yesterday protested at the entrance to the school against the move. Ministers Lionel Premasiri and Piyasena Gamage have assured that they would take up this matter with the Education Minister. Several local government politicians, too, joined the protest. A spokesman for the parents said that over the past nine years there had been 10 principals and the incumbent was definitely the best therefore they wanted him to remain at the school.
