Years of Experience
Mr. Nethan Wijesinghe
The birth of a prospective legend dawned at the Panadura territory on the 3rd of May 2000 as "Panadura Lyceum International School", the second branch of the Lyceum Group, that initiated its triumphant journey under the guidance of Founder Dr Mohan Lal Grero and Coordinating Principal Dr (Mrs) Kumari Grero. The school has now established itself as a leading international school with its main school at Walana (Panadura), the Primary at Bekkegama, and the Sports Grounds at Kiriberiya.
The school has stretched its boundaries expeditiously in infrastructure and educational arena to satisfy the increasing demand of a leading international school in the metropolitan city of Panadura. Having completed 22 years of a successful journey, Lyceum Panadura continues to expand with latest strategic inventions and involvements. The school accommodates over 3500 students, both girls and boys, ranging from Pre-Primary up to Advanced Level.
The school’s vision is to allow the students to grow with international ideals securing Sri Lankan identity and character in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religious, educational environment. Academic and co-curricular programmes conducted, comply fully with international standards. Hence, it is perfectly aligned with the vision of Lyceum International Schools Network; ‘A Global Citizen, who reshapes the future of their motherland’.
As the Principal of Lyceum International School Panadura, I am indeed proud of the great progress we have made in the past 22 years. Our students have excelled not only in academics but in the field of sports at national and international levels.
We priorities student and staff happiness. In the fast-paced world we live in, oftentimes emotions are not openly discussed. We take time to ask the questions 'Did you feel happy today?' 'What would make tomorrow a better day for you?'. We are a happy school and the happiness of our children and staff matters to us.
I take this opportunity to thank our Founder Dr Mohan Lal Grero, Coordinating Principal Dr (Mrs) Kumari Grero, Director Mr Nikitha Grero for their unsparing guidance. My sincere appreciation to the Lyceum Panadura Management, the staff, students and parents for their continuous support and cooperation towards our success.
