Haec Victoria Nostra Fides (This is our victory, even our faith)


Girls' School

Established Date



Colombo, Sri Lanka


Ladies’ College was founded in 1900 by the Church Missionary Society in Sri Lanka as a private school for girls aged 3+ to 18. As a Christian Private National Girls’ School, Ladies’ College aims to maximize the potential of every individual. This is achieved through providing a community of students, staff, governors and parents which seeks to promote the academic, cultural, moral, physical and spiritual development of its members.


Though it is a Christian school belonging to the Anglican Diocese of Colombo, a multi-religious, multi-racial and multi-cultural community was fostered at Ladies’ College from its very beginning by our founders. Quoting Ms. Simon, “We have in our school a great variety of girls differing in race, religion, age, tastes, abilities and character – indeed a variety not unlike that in Ceylon. Here we have the opportunity to learn to live together to realize that fruitful relationships are based on differences, and not on identities. There is unity in our diversity”.


Our Father by whose servants our house was built of old
Whose hand hath crowned her children with blessings manifold
For Thine unfailing mercies far strewn along our way
For all who pass before us we praise Thy name today


The changeful years unresting their silent course have sped
New comrades ever bringing in comrades’ steps to tread
And some are long forgotten, long spent their hopes and fears
Safe rest they in Thy keeping Who changest not with years


They reap not where they laboured, we reap what they have sown
Our harvest may be garnered by ages yet unknown
The days of old have dowered us with gifts beyond all praise
Our Father make us faithful to serve the coming days


Before us and beside us still holden in Thine hand
A cloud unseen of witness our elder comrades stand
One family unbroken we join with one acclaim


One heart,
One voice,
to glorify Thy name
