Saying that the status of the education in the North was somewhat staggering in recent times, former CM, C.V.Wigneswaran also said that all of us are happy to see that the Northern students are travelling towards the traditional learning skills.
Congratulations to all Northern students who had done well in the GCE (AL), he said. My congratulations to all, who had reached leading positions in their respective streams, in the North and East. We especially congratulate the rural students who had done well. They had marched forward amidst lots of economic and domestic problems, with much dedication. They do not have the facilities that are available in towns. However their victories had made us all proud. We could show the student from Navithanvelly in Amparai District gaining admission to Medical College as an example. It is not a simple matter a son of a farmer from Navithanvelly entering the medical college for the first time in the history of that village.
