One thought on “Vijaya College Matale

  1. Very interesting. part of the history of Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka's struggle to maintain its identity.
    I wonder if the past pupils of Vijaya College are members of the Sri Lanka BUddhist Schools Association that is made up of past pupils of Buddhist Schools that countintue to work hard for to avert the problems faced by these schools. Ananda Vidyalaya, Dharmaraja, Viskaha, Mahamaya, Mahinda are some of the schools that are in this association.
