Springfield College Nugegoda to offer Cambridge and National Curricula
Springfield College, a fully owned subsidiary of the Gateway Group will open a fully equipped purpose-built School in Nugegoda (Kattiya Junction) that will deliver Cambridge and National Curricula in English Medium. The school is situated in a beautifully land scaped property spanning over two acres with plenty of space for play areas which include basketball and netball courts.
Over the years, Springfield Colleges Kandy and Colombo (Borella) that also provide sound infrastructure have been carrying out an excellent teaching and learning program at a modest fee structure. These two schools will continue to offer the Sri Lankan curriculum only in the English medium. The multi-religious and multi-racial environment fostered by good discipline makes Springfield safe, secure and welcoming to Sri Lankan children to grow as well rounded students who will be successful in later life.
Gateway Group, the owners of Springfield College, is pleased to see the noteworthy progress of the school during the recent years. Mr. Ramantha Alles, Director of Gateway, is of the view that through Springfield, Gateway has taken yet another important step in fulfilling their vision of catering to all segments of society. Mrs. Nirmali Wickremesinghe, Consultant, Gateway Group, says Springfield College promises to produce disciplined and worthy Citizens, whose value will not only be in home soil, but also when they step out in to the world.
Mrs. Nelum Senadira, who will assume duties as the Principal of Springfield College Nugegoda, counts years of experience in educational leadership. Having served the Fulbright Commission as the Student Adviser for EducationUSA, Head of Gateway Graduate School and Principal of a leading Private School in Colombo, Mrs. Senadira will take up duties as the Principal of the new school from the beginning of next year. As an educator who believes in the provision of a ‘rounded education’, Mrs. Senadira says ‘our ethos is that every child is our concern so we ensure we do our utmost to promote learning and development in a loving, caring and secure homely environment.
The school in Kandy, under the guidance of well experienced educationalist Mr Asoka Herath, Director of Gateway Group, is managed by the Principal Mr. Nissanka Marapana who counts over 30 year of experience in teaching and educational administration. The Principal of the school in Borella is Mrs. Cheryl Cooray, a former Vice Principal of another leading Private School in Colombo who is known to be a caring Administrator.

Maintaining an exceptionally high standard of the English Language in comparison to what is required by the National curriculum is a priority of the Springfield Colleges.
