Rural school named after great leader neglected


By P.Jayasinghe Dadayamthalawa Corr.

Parents and the students of D. S. Senanayake National School, Galoya with 3, 000 students complain it has been neglected for decades.

This school was started with the inauguration of the Galoya Development Board in 1952. As no repairs have been done to the buildings for the last 63 years, the roofs of many buildings are on the verge of collapse posing a grave threat to students and teachers.

A student said the library had no new books and the old computers were out of order. The science laboratory had no facilities and the equipment was obsolete, a teacher told The Island.

Old Boys’s Association President Manjula said that the swimming pool constructed at a massive cost had become a white elephant. It had not yet been handed over to the school officially, he said.
