At the night classes, the teach­ers dis­cuss past pa­pers with stu­dents and share use­ful tips for the ex­am­i­na­tion.

Prin­ci­pal D. J. S Jayas­inghe said the teach­ers con­duct the night classes free of charge and par­ents of the stu­dents have ex­tended their sup­port by pro­vid­ing re­fresh­ments and other fa­cil­i­ties.
