A Special Message from our Principal for the Centenary Celebration

As the present Principal of AlHilal Central College, I’m delighted to send this message for our Centenary Celebration and launching of the official website of our school.

AlHilal Central College was the 1st Tamil medium school in the Negombo zone at Gampaha District in the Western Province. It was officially originated on 2nd of February 1920. The 1st Principal was Mr. K. Mariyampillai. At present there are 85 teachers and 1800 students.

AlHilal Central College has reached 100 years on 2nd February 2020. Teachers, students and Hilalians organized a grand walk on this day to mark this memorable event. Also they have organized various other events for the Centenary Celebration in February this year.

I have a great pleasure to state that STEC, OBA, OGA, Centenary Committee, business community, intellectuals and parents have given their fullest co-operation and assistance for the development of this school to a great extent.

There were three long periods in the history of this college. From 1920 – 1960, it was called Periyamulla Government Mixed School. A Special feature during this period was that the students sat for the SDC examination in 1953. It was upgraded to Maha Vidyalaya in 1961. From 1961 – 1990 it had been a Maha Vidyalaya. Specially, Sinhala medium was started in 1964. From 1991 – 2020 it had been a central college. The Special feature during this period was that the English medium was started in 2004.

Now, I have been trying my best to make it a National School in 2021. So, I have started the necessary basic projects for this purpose.

I also appreciate the great service and attempt of the former principals for developing this school during the past 100 years.

We have organized a subject vice exhibition on 25th, 26th and 27th of this month under the guidance of the teachers. So, I praise and welcome all the teachers who try their best to make it a great success.
