This College has played a significant and unique role in the life of tamil community in Colombo. Whether it is a glorious moment or time of crisis it was the place for tamil people to turn to. It had given shelter to those who flocked to it during periods of troubles and given accommodation for students to those who were displaced from their areas. By this ancillary role this temple of learning has been a haven for us in the Metropolis.
