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.

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.
