Petition to enroll G5 scholars into popular schools

A petition has been filed before the Court of Appeal seeking a court order to direct the Ministry of Education to formulate a program where students who obtain highest cut-off marks in the grade five scholarship examination be given admission to popular schools.

A bench comprising of Justices Ruwan Fernando and Sampath Abeykoon ordered for the petition to be taken up for consideration on the 19th of January.

The petition has been filed by the parents of 10 students who obtained highest marks in last year’s scholarship examination.

The petitioners claim no steps had been taken to provide admission to popular schools for their children, despite obtaining highest marks at the grade five scholarship examination.

Therefore, the petition requests court to issue an order to the Secretary to the Education Ministry in order to formulate a system where students who obtain highest marks at the scholarship examination be given admission to popular schools.
