It is with a tremendous sense of satisfaction, that I reminisce about my stint at Dharmapala Vidayalaya since 1994, providing leadership to 4500 students and over 250 academic as well as the non-academic staff.
Having been conferred with the title of Brevet Colonel in the National Cadet Corps by Hon. Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, under the direction of the H.E President. I am also proud of having been awarded the "Guru Prathiba Upahara" twice as the best principal among the Western Province schools, having a student population of over 2500.
Inspired by the great transformational leader, Srimath Anagarika Dharmapala , I wish to elevate Dharmapala Vidyalaya Pannipitiya to the prestigious position of 'the best mixed school in the island' whilst leading this effort within the government's education policy.
