Pilot project to change primary, secondary education syllabuses from next month

Monday, 30th of November -0001

A pilot project to introduce syllabus changes for the primary and secondary education sectors in State-run schools will be launched in April. Fifty-seven primary and 113 secondary schools have been selected for the project, Director General of the National Institute of Education Prasad Sethunga told Education Times. He said that they plan to implement the revised syllabuses in all schools from 2025.

The pilot project will test the revised syllabuses, the Active Books-based learning system and the increase of practical sessions. Under the new system, the interval for students will be increased. For the secondary education sector, a module-based system will be introduced with an increase in subjects. Among the new subjects will be nano-technology, 3D printing, and information technology.

There would also be a change in the subject selection method, thereby lifting restrictions on students in selecting subjects. President Ranil Wickremesinghe has called for a report on the progress of the pilot project to make a final decision on implementation. Usually, syllabuses are revised every 8 years, but this time the revision has been delayed. (DWI)
