Colombo South International College Honours Excellence at Annual Prize Giving Ceremony
Colombo South International’s commitment to developing well-rounded students who are prepared for success in the 21st century, is indeed heartening and inspiring. What is admirable is that they go to great lengths to recognize the efforts of their students and motivate them. Such love and passion is noteworthy and commendable.
