|Medium of Instruction |
Sinhala, and Tamil languages are the medium of instruction with English taking the place of a compulsory second language. This arrangement came about owing to a Government policy in the 1960’s, which precluded English medium education. However, English is now permitted to be a medium of instruction for selected subjects such as Mathematics, Science and Social Studies and St. Benedict’s College has already commenced an additional stream in English medium after a lapse of 40 years.
