Schools crisis also deepens
By M. Shamil Amit

In the other cricket crisis the Under 19 schools cricket tournament looks to be a running into a bottomless hole. The latest is that St Peter’s has joined the warring faction of the 13 schools that have already pulled out.

According to reliable sources St. Peter’s also joined the warring faction and has decided to boycott the SLSCA tournament. The decision to the pull out by St Peter’s was taken on Friday
A meeting of the two factions is on the cards in the near future but the point is will they be able to come to a conclusion.

According to a reliable high official who spoke to The Sunday Times stated that the authorities of both the factions has been told by circular sent by the Ministry of Education not to divulge any details to the media without the consent of secretary of the ministry concerned. However a responsible official of the SLSCA had divulged information against these rules and some inquire whether is it only them who could defy the order given by the ministry. However nothing positive could happen to this problem till the Minister of Education Susil Premajayanth’s return to the island with the Presidential UN entourage.

Schools that have already joined the boycott are --Ananda, Royal, Wesley, St. Joseph’s, St. Benedict’s, Isipathana, S.Thomas’, St. Anthony’s, Katugastota, St. Sebastian’s, St. Anne’s, Prince of Wales, Mahinda and Thurstan along with st. Peter’s. They already met the SLSCA twice without success.
