Richmond College - Sri Lanka

Richmond, obviously, inherited the socially structured educational system of Britain which was expected to train the elite for public positions. An essential element of this training was the building of character capable of serving the interests of their own society. Within a decade Richmond had emerged as a leading public school in the country and the number of Richmondites successful in Cambridge examinations and winning prizes and scholarships, distinctions and exhibitions increased annually. By the early twentieth century there were many Richmondites in the elite of Sri Lankan society, in the administration, and professions, and in new economic enterprises contributing to the society's needs.

Today Richmond has emerged as one of first few leading national institutions of this country. Its present position owes much to its founders and a succession of principals and teachers for a period well over a century. Its contribution lies not merely in the imparting of education , discipline and other virtues that a citizen of a country is expected to possess, but also in the spirit of commitment and the sense of duty towards society around and the nation as a whole, that it has inculcated in the m i nds of those who passed through its corridors.
