History

In the late 19th century all the English language schools in the area were run by Christian missionaries.[3] In 1886 Williams Nevins Muthukumaru Sithamparapillai founded The Native Town High School. The school encountered financial problems and in 1889 it was taken over by S. Nagalingam who re-located it to Vananarponnai. The school was renamed Nagalingam Town High School.[3] In 1890 the school was handed over to the Jaffna Saiva (Samaya) Paripalana Sabhai.[3] The school was moved to its present site and renamed The Hindu High School.[3]

Big Match

JHC play Kokkuvil Hindu College in an annual cricket match known as the Battle of the Hindus.[4] The first match took place in 2008.[5]
