Principal’s Message

York International School Kadawatha is the youngest of the three York Schools, commencing its academic activities in 2011.

The school caters to the English Medium examinations and the local G.C. E. O/L (English) is one of the main examinations towards which the school guides its students. The school carries a diversified curriculum which helps students not only to develop academically but also to hone their respective personalities. Towards this end we have at the moment four major co-curricular activities, mainly Cricket, Basketball, Badminton and Chess.

We are proud of what we have achieved so far in 2016 - a record haul of sixty (60) Gold Medals at the 2016 BAFA (British Arts Festival Association) and we also took part actively in the United Nations Friendship Organization Activities in August this year.
