You are warmly Welcome to the Official website of Bandaranayake Central College, Veyangoda. Bandaranayake Central College was founded in 1941, when It was a time the English rulers kept Buddhists under colonial heel. A time when Buddhist parents were compelled to send their children to missionary schools since there were no indigenous schools of their own.
It is in this context, that the foreigners like Sir Henry Steel Olcott, Madame Blavatsky and Miss. Marie Musaeus Higgins arrived in our country, to help the few Buddhist leaders in their quest for moral and philosophical freedom. If it took sometime time to be established the school, the idea was born in this period. According to a great conception of Mr. C.W.W Kannangara who is the father of free Education, it became reality in the Golden year of 1941.
We were lucky to be originally one of the three first Central Colleges established in Ceylon. Our school was established for the skill full students came from the rural areas around.
