While the play grounds belonging to the Kilinochchi Maha Vidyalayam is still under Army Control and yet to be released, the students of the school are preparing for the School’s Inter House Athletic Meet in the Grounds of Uthayatharahai Sports Club, located around 1 ½ Km. away from the school.
The Kilinochchi MV, one of the leading School in the District, has a student population of more than 2,680 distributed from Grade 6 to A/L. Further, more than 1,000 students are studying in the Kilinochchi Primary School.
In this context the play ground belonging to the School, located just in front of it is being used by the Army since 2009. Although the School Administration, District Civil Organizations, and the Educationalists had requested and submitted memorandums for the release of the grounds, but in vain.
Although it was announced last year that the Grounds had been released the Army had started using it again.
The parents had renewed the request for the release of the grounds from the Security Forces.
