Kannangara, the founder of the free education system, and the first Minister of Education in Sri Lanka (Ceylon). In the early 60s when he was in his last stages of a well spent life, soliloquizing on the fruits of lifetime endeavour, with a heavy heart on the then emerging trends in the Education field, assisted form this Forum of Past Pupils who have left the portals of the Pioneer Central Colleges and have established themselves in the numerous fields for the development of their Motherland.
