Royal College, Colombo, celebrating its 175th year, is developing a 5 year strategic plan for the school. The project is managed by the School Development Committee (SDC) established under the Programme for School Improvement (PSI) initiative by the Ministy of Education of Sri Lanka.
The school is partnering with MTI Consulting in this initiative, taking into consideration the evolving educational landscape, and the expectations of all key external and internal stakeholder groups.
MTI said in a statement that it will be conducting many consulting sessions, workshops, feedback and research from stakeholders in order to develop this plan. The 5-year plan will be centered around the ‘Royal College Eco System’ which focuses around the development of a student, via the economic value addition of education, personality and the individual’s values and morals. Academic activities, Co-curricular activities (including sports as well as clubs and societies), Teachers and the College Infrastructure form the next inner circle while External Linkages, government expectations and compliances will form the outer circle, according to MTI CEO, Hilmy Cader.
Royal College Principal Upali Gunasekera said the school expects to maintain and improve upon the success built over 175 years and noted that this would be a landmark achievement for the school by becoming the first government educational institution to develop such a strategic direction.
