Jaffna Hindu College (Tamil: யாழ்ப்பாணம் இந்துக் கல்லூரி Yāḻppāṇam Intuk Kallūri, JHC) is a national school in Jaffna, Sri Lanka.[1][2] It was founded in 1886 by a group of Hindu people who wanted an English language alternative to the Christian missionary schools.

History[edit]

In the late 19th century all the English language schools in the area were run by Christian missionaries.[3] In 1886 Williams Nevins Muthukumaru Sithamparapillai founded The Native Town High School. The school encountered financial problems and in 1889 it was taken over by S. Nagalingam who re-located it to Vananarponnai. The school was renamed Nagalingam Town High School.[3] In 1890 the school was handed over to the Jaffna Saiva (Samaya) Paripalana Sabhai.[3] The school was moved to its present site and renamed The Hindu High School.[3]

Big Match[edit]
