J/Union College has been a pioneer mixed school in Valikamam Zone in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka since 1816.Its motto is ‘Education Breeds Betterment’. The College has a very long history with emeritus principals, dedicated staff and obedient and well-attained students. It is eminent that the College has its children all over the globe, serving and being in good positions. Today, the role of a school is not only to impart knowledge that consists of the prearranged prospectus of the institution as the world is beyond the class room.
It is the responsible role of the school to build and strengthen character of the students to develop qualities of good leadership that can be employed in the Nation. We have produced many scholars in the GCE O/L and GCE A/L Examination these past years, and excel led in the field of sports at the provincial and national level. Thousands and thousands students have passed through the portal of Union College. Many of them have made a mark in public life; and exactly, all who passed through this College have a lot to thank for what they have received from it. Much has been done in the last 199 years, and still more to be done in the years to come. We must work hard together beyond the creeds to strengthen the College at the time of celebrating bicentenary in 2016.
