Stafford International School, Colombo 7 categorically rejected accusations spawning from an image circulating on WhatsApp and social media platforms claiming its teachers were posting Islamophobic comments on social media. 

The management asserted that the mentioned teachers on these images were not employees of Stafford International School in Sri Lanka nor were they affiliated with the school.

The institution further stated that Stafford International School located in Colombo 7 had been established in Sri Lanka for the past 33 years and had never had any affiliations with the school mentioned in the circulating image – Stafford Sri Lankan School in Doha Qatar. 

Stafford International School further stated that it did not have any other branches located within Sri Lanka or overseas. “Stafford International School in Sri Lanka strongly denounces these baseless and inaccurate allegations accusing our teachers of posting Islamophobic comments and pictures on social media. This is completely incorrect and baseless, as these said teachers have never been employees of the school in any capacity,” stated Stafford International School Academic Director Suvin Wettimuny.

Stafford International School was founded in 1986 and is located in the heart of Colombo 7. This institution is an independent, private, co-educational, and multi-ethnic international school that guides its students towards international examinations offered by both Edexcel and Cambridge in the UK.
