A total of 445 education staff who discharged duty of teaching in Laukkai region and its surrounding villages arrived at Mandalay Education College on 23 February afternoon.
Mandalay Region Minister for Social Affairs Dr Win Hlaing welcomed them. Mandalay Region Government and wellwishers served them with dinner and made arrangements for their trips to homes.
“We arrange delivery of two-month pay in advance to teachers. We open new examination centres in Lashio and Kunlong for matriculation and other students. Now, those teachers were allowed to return home because their holidays are getting nearer. We ordered over 800 departmental personnel and local people to move to base camp,” said Director-General U Tin Myo Kyi of No 2 Department of Basic Education (Upper Myanmar).
“We are worried about students who were left in Laukkai. There are two basic education high schools in Laukkai. We will go to Laukkai for examination of students before next academic year. Now, we stop over in Mandalay and leave for home by car,” Senior Assistant Teacher Daw Than Htay of Laukkai Basic Education High School No 1 told media.
Those education staff who discharged duty in Laukkai region come from Mandalay, Sagaing and Magway regions.
