Since August 2014 Mr.P.M.G. Gamini Jayawardhane of SLEAS has been serving as the Principal.

Mahinda College, an extraordinary school, has stood as an example of excellence for over 120 years. Mahinda College as one of the prominent Olcott schools in the island and its identity is unique in the history of Sri Lanka. Mahinda boys were the first to sing the National Anthem and the sacred Olcott Hall was the very first place where it was first sung at a high tone in 1940s.Then Mahinda College Music master late Mr. Ananda Samarakoon had taught his students this song before it was officially accepted by the Government as the National Anthem . So wherever the Sri Lanka Matha ….. is sung the name of Mahinda College should be reverberated in the minds of all Sri Lankans irrespective of Race and Religion. I am quite happy that our Web Team boys have painstakingly designed and updated the official web site of the college and make use of todays’ amazing technology of electronic media to publicize college affairs throughout the world . This would be very important for a majority of Old Mahindians who live abroad in countries like UK, USA, Australia, UAE and Italy as they could lend their helping hand towards the various Development Projects being in progress within the school. I am as the key administrative person of the college is always ready to utilize all the resources which I come across for the improvement of academic and other extra and co-curricular activities of the students.
I wish all the luck for the web Team students and the IT tutorial staff in their future endeavours.
මේ මහින්ද ශාස්ත්‍රශාලා කීර්තියෙනි වැජඹේවා!
