Trinity head’s appointment challenged

A student of Trinity College, Kandy, his father and a well wisher of the school have filed a petition in the Court of Appeal challenging the appointment of the Trinity College acting principal.

The petitioners have stated that a principal of an Assisted or Unaided school such as Trinity College should be a university graduate with at least 10 years of teaching experience. They have alleged that the respondent does not possess the required qualifications and experience to be appointed as a principal of Trinity College.

The petitioners have stated that the respondent has obtained only the G.C.E. (O/L) qualification and has obtained a Masters Degree in Technology from a Military College in India, without a first class degree. They have further said the respondent does not have any teaching experience in a government or a private school or a university.

The petitioners have requested court to grant an interim order suspending the acting appointment of the respondent until the final determination of that application.

The petitioners are R.M.R.Bandara, I.A.K.Iddamalgoda and I.A.Lakshan Iddamalgoda. The respondents include the Education Ministry Secretary, the Acting Principal Udaya Ariyaratna and the Trinity College Board of Governors.
