“This school is not the million bricks, but the thousand hearts who carry more dreams than the night sky has stars. This school is the emotions, our stories and our love for each other.”

Holy Cross College Branch School is situated in a peaceful, coastal village Payagala away from the hubbub of Kalutara town. The College has risen like a giant wave on a gentle ocean in the midst of a great quilt of brown and green patches. To the unaccustomed eye the College landscape is a beautiful swathe of rolling green surrounded by walls of unique mangroves, picturesque by any standards.

The milestone in the history of Holy Cross College has been accomplished along with the opening of the Branch school attached to Holy Cross College Kalutara on the 14th January, 2004 at Palapolwatta,Payagala, as to the suggestion made by His Grace Rev. Dr. Oswald Gomis – the former Archbishop of Colombo.
