Polymath college direct children towards ‘Vivere Disce – Learn to Live’

Polymath college in Nawinna,Maharagama is not yet another ordinary international school. It is extraordinary. ‘Polymath’ means – ‘Having learned much’ in Greek or ‘Universal Man’ in Latin.

It has been commenced with a great intention of crafting a comprehensive personality & environment loving kid. Anybody can provide knowledge, but education. Provide education is a process,which needs to be done with lot of effort & care. Otherwise, world will be filled with learned, but heartless, senseless people. POLYMATH COLLEGE is in action to take that challenge with a motto of ‘Vivere Disce - Learn to Live’.

Principal Mr. Upali Gunasekera (former principal of Royal College Colombo) & Vice Principal Mr. Sudath Liyanagunawardena (former Assistant Principal/Senior Games Master of Royal College Colombo) are in the driving seat to accomplish this difficult task. Both of their experience & guidance complement teachers ‘dedication& determination to make this mission a success.

Polymath college started with kindergarten and now opened up to advanced level, in Sinhala & English medium. Local syllabus as well as British syllabus are taught. They have intentions to introduce university education in the near future.

It is more than a school. They provide additional backing for parents by maintaining a ‘Day Care Centre’. They will take care of your children till 9.00 pm in all 365 days. That is a great relief for most of working parents. Kids love to be in the day care center as same as with their parents, probably more. They call the matron ‘mom’ & most of the kids wish to spend even their holidays with her. It provides evidence for her care & enormous love.

They have taken another bold step to train kids to enjoy a nourishing meal instead of unhealthy instant food. Consultant Nutritionist - Dr. Renuka Jayatissa has volunteered to advise the management of Polymath college for this worthy cause. Further, plans are drawn to provide it from school itself. You will find vegetables, fruits, greens grown all around the school premises. This green environment together with the Butterfly Garden indirectly make kids fall in love with nature. Polymath college is heading for a healthy nation.
