postheadericon Ferguson High School

 

Being perched on a little hill situated in the heart of the “City of Gems” Ratnapura ; facing the sacred mountain “The Adam’s Peak” , Ferguson High School illuminates the whole nation with its fame for nearly 95 years.

Inaugurated in 1917 by the Baptist Missioneries Rev. J.B. Radley and his wife , the school was then known as Baptist Missionary English School. Miss. Elizabeth Maldeniya who was the first teacher of this school took the initiative in her career of teaching with three students in the vestry of the Baptist church.

As the number on roll was increasing the school was then moved from the valley to the hill in 1919.

In 1922 , Miss Alsop became the first principal , and it was her faith and vision and boundless energy that developed the school in many ways. The school was named Ferguson High School in 1928 in memory of Mr. John Ferguson who had played a prominent part in the life of the Baptist Church.

Being so proud and honoured to have the world’s first Woman Prime Minister Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranayaka as the distinguished past pupil of the school , Mother Ferguson has taken giant strides within the period of 95 years to carve her name in the world history in golden letters as a ‘ Leading Girls' School in Sri Lanka’.

At present , the school shelters over 4000 Fergusonites enjoying educational facilities guided by Mrs.Mercy Galagama , Acting Principal and a staff of about 200 devoted teachers providing knowledge and assisting the students in the development of aptitudes and attitudes that assist in the process of moulding the students and make them exemplary useful citizens (young ladies) to the nation.

Having " LIVE PURE , SPEAK TRUE , RIGHT WRONG " as the motto , the school has reached great heights to its vision.

Students who excel in different fields in National and International Levels every year are a good evidence to prove the strength power and the majesty of the school .
