Message of Principal
As the principal of one of the oldest and premier schools in Sri Lanka, I convey this message with great pleasure to the Sri Jayawrdanapura Maha Vidyalaya Website. With 8 students in 1822 this school initiated under the first principal, Sir. Samuel Lambrick and it was called as Verandah School. From then to now under number of principals the school is continuing grandeur journey. Through this journey it has furnished number of unique sons such as Anagarika Dharmapala, John de Silva, Ananda Samarakone and A.Rathnayaka. At present the school is in a privileged position in education development as well as co curricular activities. Vice principals, teachers, old boys and parents of the school take a great effort to keep the school in this situation. My hope is to uplift the past glory and to create salutary sons to the society. I must grateful for your support given to make my dream a reality. The reputation of Sri Jayawardanapura Maha Vidyalaya will be extend all through the country.
