Description of the Subordinate Components

Part I    The Commandement of Galle.

C   Boards and Committees

4   "Scholarchale vergadering" or School Board

d   School tombos. Galle and Matara districts.
There was no separate "Scholarchale vergadering" or School Board at Matara; so the Board at Galle supervised the schools in the Matara district too, and all reports and files were deposited at Galle.
The school tombos are entered here in alphabetical order of the names of the schools under the two districts. A detailed report on the maintenance of the school tombos appears in the annexes to the compendium from Galle and Matara in no. 2766, page 221.
The school tombos are all undated. Most of them have continued to be maintained during the British period, so that they belong to the period of the 18th and the early 19th centuries.
