Education Ministry decrees:

Mobile phone taboo in schools

In move to create a well disciplined student population in the country, the Education Ministry is to issue a special circular that prevents students from bringing mobile phones to the schools.

Educational Directors islandwide have already been directed to maintain a high standard of discipline in schools under their command. This directive comes in the wake of a horrifying incident which brought death to one student in a leading school in Colombo. Two students of a leading school in Colombo who carried mobile phones attempted to commit suicide after they were spotted by the prefects. They had tried to commit suicide.

One student died and other student is still receiving treatment at the hospital.

According to an Education Ministry official, this directive is applicable to the private and semi Government schools too.

He said bringing mobile phones to the school would be deemed an offence by the Ministry and the students who transgress these instructions will be severely dealt with.

Certain schools in the country where incidents of indiscipline are rampant have already directed the students not to bring mobile phones to the school.

"The parents are spoiling children by providing mobile phones to them. They should accept responsibility in moulding the characters of their children outside the schools, he said.

He said the teachers have been informed not to use mobile phones unncessarily during school time.
