With the commencement of the Arts and Commerce streams for G.C.E. (A/L), Sangamiththa was upgraded as a Maha Vidyalaya in 2010.
Without a break they were able to enjoy 25 – 30% of the pass rate in the Grade 5 Scholarship Examination and 92% to 95% in the G.C.E. (O/L) Examination. The first batch of students who sat for the G.C.E. (A/L) was fortunate to earn the right to sit for the university entrance examination. Kamali Perera made a name for herself as the first student to enter university from Sangamiththa. The members of staff, are truly a pillar of strength.

Academic activities, sports, and extra-curricular activities have equally reached the same rate of development in Divisional and Zonal level competitions. They were able to secure many all island victories in Volleyball, Netball and Athletics. Table tennis was introduced to the school curriculum recently. The skill displayed by the students in sports such as chess and karate has enabled the school to win several all island competitions.
The aesthetic section of Sangamiththa BMV has a method of study that promotes the intellectual development of the students enabling them to win several all island trophies.
The Police Cadet squad commenced in 2010. They performed well in the Rantambe Assessment camps and added glory to the college by acquiring the all island championship in 2012 and were runners-up in 2013. The Sergeant of the Police Cadet Platoon Shyadee Rameesha Ranatunga was able to represent the team which toured India to take part in the Republic Day celebrations of India.
Students of Sangamiththa have shown their colours and highest performance in the sporting field with minimal sporting facilities. The shortage of a playground is the major issue which has diminished their highest level of triumphs.
The annual blood donation camp which is being organised by the Prefect’s Board is a successful event and a pride to the school. The library and the well-equipped IT Unit play a foremost role in the enrichment of the educational level of the students.
The extended programme of co-curricular activities such as Girls Guide Association; Health Unit and Environmental Unit has been well established and the students enjoy being actively involved in at least one society of their choice.
Considering the humble beginnings of Sangamiththa Balika Maha Vidyalaya which has been extended to a great deal today with a four storied building, consisting of a main hall, a science lab, a home science lab, a unit for technology, a media unit, a staff room, a cadet room, a prefect room, a student’s rest room and quite numbers of class rooms today is indeed something to be proud of the massive strides it has made during the past 23 years, to enjoy the prestige of being one of the leading education institutions in the zone.
Mother Sangamithta has sincere values. The immense contribution provided by the School Management Committee, the Old Girls’ Association, the School Development Society and well-wishers is indeed something to be proud of.
Today, Sangamiththa Balika Maha Vidyalaya has gained significant progress under principal Mrs. L.H.S. Padmini de Silva and she was able to add many physical and educational milestones to the history of the college in all academic, co- curricular and extra- curricular activities. The successful journey continues…
