As the Principal at Good Shepherd convent –Panadura , it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve in such an outstanding school in the country. This school was started in 1954, with the support given to the Good Shepherd Sisters, by the Catholic Community of Panadura. This School was founded to provide catholic education to the girls in the village.
We have successfully completed the 60 years in our school. There is no doubt that during those 60 years of its existence Good Shepherds Convent School Panadura has been a green pasture for a great number of sheep. Our school too ,like other non-free –levying private school has been existing with a selfless commitment, in spite of the continuous struggle for survival .At present there are over 1300 girls in the school. We have always maintained our standard in studies, in sports and especially in religious education.
So let us work together with peace and equanimity to spread the Kingdom of God.. May the Good Shepherd who has called us for a heroic effort, to impart Catholic education in the present education set up, be our guide.
