‘Hello Student Programme’ is going to be launched in Province 1. The Ministry of Social Development has been making preparation to launch the programme in order to teach the students by telephone as the situation is not conducive to resume the schools physially.
Moreover, there is presence of only less number of students in online class due to coronavirus pandemic. The programme is to be launched with an objective of giving continuity to teaching learning activities targeting the students who are not able to join online class as well as students of coronavirus hit areas.
