It is said that the transfer letter handed over yesterday (26) had informed him to assume duties at his new post from today itself.
'Sri Lanka Mirror' learns that Mr. Wathuhewa has done so today (27).
The transfer comes as next year's Grade 01 admissions for Nalanda College are just round the corner.
Mr. Wathuhewa was appointed as principal of Nalanda College in 2017 when his predecessor faced a host of corruption charges.
Earlier, when popular schools had called for candidates to fill vacant principal positions, Mr. Wathuhewa had stated Nalanda College as his primary choice and Richmond College as his second choice.
Meanwhile, 'Sri Lanka Mirror' further learns that a principal who is due to retire in a year's time, is to be appointed to Nalanda College.
