The Information & Technology Society

The ICT section was the brain child of the Past Pupil Association and became a reality on 7th February 1992. It was blessed and declared open by His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. Vianney Fernando. Classes were held during school hours for students who had left school. Students in the school followed lessons after 2.00 p.m. as Information Technology was not a subject in the school curriculum. Mrs. Bhagya Karunaratne and Miss. Sharmila Peter were the first teachers who held fort for many years.
When Rev. Sr. Alexandra became the Principal in 2004, Information Technology was introduced as a subject in the school curriculum. Since then many teachers have been responsible for teaching the subject.

In the few decades especially the revolution in communication has greatly altered the demand for providing better facilities for our students.
In keeping with these changing trends, the Computer Laboratory was fully refurbished along with air-conditioning, the provision of 40 new computers and two laboratories, one for students from Grade 4 to 9 and the other from Grade 10 to 13. This was the first project undertaken by the new Principal Rev. Sr. Gertrude who took office in 2011.

Information and Technology was introduced as a main subject for the Advanced Level Classes in 2010. The need then arose to form an ICT Society to enable students to acquire knowledge, acquire skills and bring out their talents. The Society was formed in 2011. The name 'Array' was suggestedbythe committee members of 2012/2013. The ICT and Media Day are held on the same day. Students from schools in Kandy are invited. Holding both events together helps students to also acquire the ability of sharing their ideas and commit themselves to work with conviction and dedication.

The re-furbished Computer Section was blessed and declared open by His Lordship Rt. Rev. Dr. Vianney Fernando on 25th March 2011. He spoke extensively on the misuse of this facility in the society and the world at large. While enjoying the benefits of IT, he cautioned teachers, parents and students to be vigilant at all times.

'Sanyathra' Media Society

With the opening of satellite communication, mass communication has become an inseparable part of human life. Today children are encouraged to use media tools in school and are expected to have a general understanding of the various technologies available. The subject, Communication and Mass Media was introduced to the school in 2009 in keeping with the necessities of the time to students living in this global generation. The Media Society was formed in 2011 and named 'Sanyathra' by the first President, Piyumi Kodituwakku. A Media Day is held annuallywith the participation of schools in Kandy.
Through talks by leading media personnel, presentations, skits and songs the stage becomes a medium for diffusing knowledge and creating awareness of the explosion of digital communication technology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
Students in the Media Society participate in competitions organized by other schools and have won a number of awards. In 2010 the students won 2nd place in the 'Creative' compositions magazine held by Vidhyartha College.

The first Media Day was held on 13th May 2011 at St. Euphrasia's Hall, on the theme, 'Print Media' . The Chief Guest, Rev. Fr. Shriyananda Fernando, Director, Mass Media and Communication, Arch-diocese of Colombo gave an interesting and insighful talk on Print Media. His message was one of courage, perseverance and hope for the young creative artist. When the world has shrunk to the proportions of the global village, knowledge of Mass Media is imperative to all students. There is no doubt the Media Society will grow from strength to strength.
