Welcome to Southlands College

Southlands College Galle, a premier girls’ school in Southern Province was started in 1885 by the Methodist Mission with a small group of 51 children in two large down-stair rooms in a house in Fort, Galle. In accordance withthe Educational Policy of the British prevailing  during the latter part of the 19th century. The first Principal was Ms. Lucy Vanderstraten. The intention of the Mission was to promote English education in Southern Sri Lanka and the school was originally known as Girls High School, Galle.

The success of an institution depends on the quality & ability of it’s leadership. Southlands College was fortunate to have a series of leaders in the form of Principals who have done outstanding services during past 132 years. Among them Miss. Edith Ridge & Mrs. Daniel are considered as two past principals with great personalities of two different eras who have contributed yeoman service to our Alma Mater.

Today Southlands College shines as one of the foremost girls’ schools in Southern Sri Lanka serving in the field of education as well as sports very successfully over a span of 132 years. All Principals together with their capable teachers have put in an enormous effort and splendid services to educate and nourish the blooming buds of Southlanders and uplifting  the school in the academic realm as well as in many extracurricular fields.

Principal’s Message

As the principal I am happy to convey my heartiest wishes for the launching of a new website of Southlands College, Galle. I strongly believe that it will be much benefitted in favour of the achievements of the school. As one of the leading schools in Sri Lanka, Southlands College is gifted with many talented students in every sphere. I hope this website will be a reflection of all the remarkable endeavours of the school and glorious victories of the students for the betterment of their alma mater.

Thus all the past students, teachers and well-wishers would get ample opportunities to be informed about the school and its on-going educational and extracurricular activities. Not only that, this website will fulfil the essential need of the future generation who seeks information about the prestigious history of the school. And also I take this opportunity to express my willingness to lead the school towards the success day by day. Shadowing the school motto, ’Knit Together in Love and Service’’ I do hope you all will join  in my genuine efforts to cherish the future of the school.

                                                    Principal - Mrs. Sandya Irani Pathiranawasam
