About Maris Stella
Maris Stella College, Negombo was started in 1922 by the Marist Brothers of the Schools, a Catholic Religious Congregation founded in France in 1817. Rev. Bro. Lewis, a Frenchman, was the first Principal. He began the school with eight primary classes.
The College celebrates 100 years in 2022 with its Branch School developing fast in Thimbirigaskatuwa. Both schools serve about 5000 students presently. The College is indebted to parents and Past Pupils for their generous support to its management.
