Our Journey


The founder Rev. Fr. Zacharius Dabrera O.M.I

Christ King College at Pannipitiya was established by Rev. Fr. Zacharius Dabrera O.M.I as an English School in 1929. The school was a tremendous advantage to residents of Pannipitiya and its suburbs as they otherwise had to send children all the way to Colombo to be educated in the English Medium.
