The Western Province has decided to reopen all grades of schools for academic purposes on March 29, 2020.
It was previously determined that schools in Western Province would reopen on April 19 for all grades.
It has, however, been pushed back three weeks. Dr. Asela Gunawardena, Director-General of Health Services, has approved the decision.
Meanwhile, academic activities for Grades 05, 11, and 13 began earlier this month in Western Province schools.
