Nilani Galbada (B.Ed.) Principal
Horizon College International
I am happy to welcome you to Horizon College International Nugegoda which is the only branch school of HCI Malabe, one of the best international schools in Sri Lanka today. It has an excellent reputation for providing an outstanding and blooming all-round education based on a well-balanced British curriculum for 2 1/2 to 18 year olds and the degree level which has its own Campus. Curriculum at the Primary Level is activity based learning and encourages creativity. Our students will be equipped with the knowledge and skill to sit for the Edexcel IGCSE Examination and A/L examination. I congratulate the Chairman Mr. Upul Daranagama and the Main School Principal Mrs. Maryanne Hills for their persistent efforts to bring HCI Malabe to this high standard within a short period of six years. I consider myself privileged to join HCI Nugegoda, as the Principal, from the 2014-2015 academic years. With over 35 years of experience in Primary Education, locally and overseas, I am looking forward to the responsibilities I am given and expect to achieve the same level of standard our main school in Malabe has achieved. Our school is situated at No. 360, Old Kottawa Road, Udahamulla, Nugegoda. Within one year HCI Nugegoda has been well-equipped with almost all the facilities of that of the main school, such as a Computer Lab, Library, Science Laboratory, Speech & Drama Room, Dance Room, Music Room, Home Science Room, IT Facilities and Play Areas.
We are a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religious community and we recognize and nurture different faiths, customs and traditions. It is the aim of our school to provide students with a sound moral basis, for a well-educated mind with a solid academic foundation and, very importantly, to develop a balanced well rounded citizen. We believe that a balanced education such as we provide, enables our students to go out in to the world as academically sound, socially skilled young people who contribute positively to society.
Therefore we give priority to the principles of humanity,empathy,social responsibility, mutual and self-respect and help to produce youngsters who are humble, refined, educated and accomplished. Our well-qualified, hard working staff and support staff, carry out their duties with loyalty and dedication. The teachers help students to adjust to their new school and make learning fun. Our school is a busy place, where students engage in a wide range of activities before and after school. Our intent is to ensure that all students find their hidden talents and develop leadership, interpersonal and interactive skills.
Sports is given an important place in the school's curriculum. We have activities in our programme, such as Athletics, Swimming, Basketball, Cricket, Netball, Little Friends, etc. assigned for the students. We provide experienced coaches who are committed towards helping our children achieve their personal best. It is our main goal to help all students find success at HCI. We look forward to helping your children achieve their best. I hope to meet you in the future. Wishing You a Blessed Future!
