Principal - Mr W.W.A.P. Padmasiri

Walisinghe Harischandra Maha Vidyalaya (National School) is a mixed school situated in Anuradhapura. The capital city of North Central Province. It lies under the shade of the sacred Bo Tree.

                It was started as a small school with 7 teachers and 200 students on the 7th of September 1955. The first principal was Mr.D.Jayathilaka. At present it has been developed into a 1AB popular school with about 5000 students, 190 teachers and 4 deputy principals. There are classes from Grade 6 to 13 with all subject streams such as Science, Maths, Commerce, Arts and Technology.

               I appreciate the contribution of all the principals and the staff from time to time to make this school a successful one. As the present principal I’ am very proud to say that this is a great achievement we have gained. Apart from that, this is a school of everything. Day by day it goes to the winning point through learning teaching process as well as co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

           I’ am very pleased to express that a student of this school, Kavindu Chamendra Illangakoon has done a great task, creating the Website and Android app of the school. This is the first time that an android app was launched from a school in the North Central Province in Sri Lanka. This is a great step to show communication abilities other than the theoretical studies.

          I must say that this is a great step to enter the world of globalization. Finally, I appreciate this great task. I wish you a successful and a prosperous future.

My heartiest Congratulations!
