Batuwangala is a beautiful remote village situated in Galle district Hinidumpattuwa. It is 70 kms away from the town Galle. The village has an eminent importance in the aspect of history Legends bear witness to prove the historical importance It is said that king Walagamloa once hid for protection in the ancient village temple He was accompanied by several guards One such guard accidentally slipped down from a rock The rock from which the guard slipped down later became Batuwangala the origin formed in this way “Bata” means guard, “wan”, “ means fell down and “Gala” means rock As the temple was associated by the king it was named as Batuwangala Raja maha Vihara too Elderly villagers are fond of recalling this origin of the village. Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya is in the heart of the village paving the path to village children to kindle the light of wisdom. The concept of evillge has immersed in school community as well as the dwellers.
Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya is the leading ICT institution in Down south Sri Lanka. From the very first beginning we were curious about the challenge we faced coz this is a remote, village school with student population less than 300. Classes conduct from Grade one to Grade 13. When we start a website for the evillage we were behind some five, let’s say 10 schools in the country. From the very first beginning Our ICT teacher Mr.Aruna Chaminda had strict and fast track ICT training to the Batuwangala Maha Vidyala’s students and of course to the village people. We faced lots of hardships. At certain points we were trapped up to neck and what we did certain times was we postpone our internet based activities for while and then starting again. Given bellow is our statistics at the date of 11th May 2011. We have exceeded one Hundred thousand Hits.
This gives us nothing but inspiration to go further as Mr.Aruna Says. We do be proud and of course very very happy coz among known facts we are the first school in Sri Lanka with known stats to exceed this limit. In this point we would like to thank Secondary Education Modernization Project Known as SEMP for giving us a computer Lab and Training. And we would like to be thankful to Mr.Denuwan Wijewardena for his endless favors he rendered for our school. Mr.Denuwan will add to history of our evillage with no doubt. Then Mr.Chanuka Waththegama must be thank coz he showed us the way to appear in the Internet. Inside Batuwangala Maha Vidyalaya, Our Principal, teachers and all the students must be thanked for their support regarding this project.
