This school is not only one of the top schools in the Hambantota zone, but also the whole of Sri Lanka. 

It regularly secures some of the country’s highest grade five exam pass rates. 

Children who do well in the exam typically move over to neighbouring sister school Debarawewa National College. 

Previously, those who didn’t pass had to find places in the local village schools, but in recent years the school has been able to expand its facilities so they’re able to stay on.

The Principal was also determined to help special needs children in the area.

Thanks to funding from Credit Suisse, we have been able to build a dedicated centre with classrooms for children with a range of disabilities and a hearing aid unit.
