Principal’s Message

Sinhala Language Section is proud of its long history of providing quality educational opportunities for students.

Buddhist Sri Lankan Association of Victoria Sinhala Language was established in 1997. In 1999, we joined the LOTE (Languages other than English) program conducted by the DET (Department of Education and Training) to impart Sinhala Language as a part of 2nd language learning.

The Sinhala Language Section is now famed as an ethnic school. Our school is funded and accredited by Department of Education and Training. We follow Victorian Essential Learning Standards.

The school focuses remains on the key areas of listening, speaking, writing and reading of Sinhala Language but also offers a diverse curriculum to ensure that students receive a well rounded educational experience.

In addition to the academic focus, the school offers a strong value-based program that supports the building of individual and collective self-esteem.

As Principal, I am proud of the achievements of our students and teachers and believe that our school provides students with a strong foundation for future learning. I invite and encourage Sri Lankan community to enrich the development of the Sinhalese language, identity and culture in multicultural Australia for many more generations

Most Venerable Naotunne Vijitha Nayaka Thero
