English Day of Christ Church College, Matale

It was July 12, 2007, the dawn of a significant day for the principal, staff and students of Christ Church College, Matale, which is one of the oldest schools in Matale, established in 1864. It went down in history, as the first scouts troop was established here in 1912.
