About St. Benedict's College


St. Benedict's College the oldest Roman Catholic school in Sri Lanka, was inaugurated in 1865 by the Benedictine Monks. The school consisted of few classrooms and a small staff at first. In 1868, the De La Salle Brothers took over the administration of the College. Since then the school has been headed by many Brothers who belonged to the La Sallian Community.


The College provides education to around 3000 students with a staff of around 200+ teachers. Students are enrolled from Grade 1 to Grade 13 with the local syllabus in English Sinhala and Tamil mediums.

College Anthem


Boys of St. Benedict’s young and old,

High be your aim in life’s onward view!

Loyal and devoted be to the fold,

With reverence meet to your shepherds true!


For Christ and Church, united we stand.

E’er loyal and staunch, or win we, or fall!

The truth to sow broadcast o’ er the land,

Promptly to rally at duty’s call!


True to our God and true to all men,

Follow we ever life’s holy plan!

Doing the duty that is to do

Bearing the cross with the crown in view.
