School trips to be restricted to 100km per day

The Ministry of Education announced that the distance which a school field trip can go up to will be restricted to 100 kilometres per day.

Accordingly, Ministry officials are working on introducing new laws allowing school tours within a 100 kilometres distance per day, and returning the students before 6.30 pm on tour days.

A circular is being formulated in this regard, according to reports.

The move comes in following the fatal accident in Nanuoya, where a bus carrying students of Thurstan College, Colombo collided with a van and a three-wheeler killing seven people, including three children. The bus driver who was arrested for negligent driving was remanded.
