Mr Ross Walker, Head of Music, has left a legacy of Samba Bands at several secondary schools in Batticlaoa. The Samba Band that he introduced in 2014 to Vipulanantha High School now has a reputation in the town of Batticlaoa as a high-quality Samba Band and are often invited to local ceremonies. Recently they were invited to an opening ceremony of an Insurance Company in the town of Batticlaoa.
