About our school

sch.jpgThe village leaders’ eyes were turned to Damahana village in 1949 and to develop it and to improve the nation’s children’s knowledge and the morals of them.
Ven. Panana Wimalawansa Thero and some of village chiefs took the leadership to this useful task.

They all decided to build a school in this area a few miles away from the Balangoda town.


Overcoming all the difficulties, a chief of this village, W. A. Punchimahaththaya contributed a plot of land to build a school.Today a lot of splendid buildings at this school but on February 24 in 1949 it was commenced in a temporary building under a cadjan roof. It was born like that but at present it is not only for Damahana pupils but also it is useful to the children of the suburb villages and now it is passing its 57th year.
