State Minister of Preschools & Primary Education Piyal Nishantha says attention has been directed on increasing the monthly allowance of preschool teachers.

Speaking during an event held under the patronage of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa at the Temple Trees today, State Minister Piyal Nishantha said issues of health and nutrition pertaining to preschool children, the preschool syllabus and teacher’s handbooks and concerns over senior teachers above the age of 60 should be granted special focus.

He noted the allowance was granted to teachers up until 65 years of age, adding a programme must be facilitated towards older teachers as well.
