With the introduction of the Technology Stream in the G.C.E. Advanced Level studies many 1AB schools throughout the Island started teaching their students the technology subjects prescribed by the Ministry of Education. St. Patrick’s was one of the very few schools in the peninsula to try this out. Classes were successfully conducted and the students were enthusiastic. In order to give more effective learning experience to the students, the College felt the need of a Technology Centre furnished with necessary equipments and lab facilities. With much generous donations of the old Patricians all over the world a new three-storey building was established. The new building was blessed by His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith and opened by His Excellency Maithiripala Srisena, former president of Sri Lanka.
