Principal’s Message

Principal - Polymath College

We endeavor to help Polymaths to see mistakes not as failures, but as an essential part of their learning. The school curriculum is oriented that Polymaths embody self-confidence and think out of the box.

Our commitment at “POLYMATH” is to provide a challenging educational program for all Polymaths within a safe, nurturing environment which will enable them to function as positive, productive, ethical, confident, effective, innovative, responsible and disciplined global citizens with very high moral values, character, skills and creativity.

At “POLYMATH”, each Polymath is considered an asset and we take care of each individual. All Polymaths follow a curriculum that encourages them to explore, question, experience, discuss and learn from our qualified, dedicated, dynamic and committed staff.

Having realized that satisfaction is one of the key elements for success, “POLYMATH” maintains the highest standard for all Polymaths and its staff members to enter and leave the school premises happily. We are acutely aware that students are different to one another and are capable of learning. It is the responsibility of the staff to understand the needs of all Polymaths and we believe in praise, encouragement, enthusiasm, inspiration, motivation and affection rather than criticism, fear, condemnation and punishment.

We endeavor to help Polymaths to see mistakes not as failures, but as an essential part of their learning. The school curriculum is oriented that Polymaths embody self-confidence and think out of the box.

While appreciating the fact that all schools encourage students to learn and be thorough in different subject areas, “POLYMATH” concentrates more on the school motto ‘Vivere Disce – Learn to Live’ and provide opportunities for Polymaths to move in that direction.

At a time of increasing global challenges and threats, such as inequality, exclusion, violence and sectarianism aggravated by local tensions and conflicts which undermine people’s cohesion, more than being thorough in subject matter, learning to live together among all members of the global community becomes more meaningful than ever before as envisioned by UNESCO.

“POLYMATH” believes that there is no contradiction between learning and fun; joy and pursuit of excellence; global and local; & respecting traditions and embracing change.

There is no doubt that Polymaths are the best.

They portray an International personality with a Sri Lankan identity in keeping with the objectives of “POLYMATH” College.
