About our school

The 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 cemmeced 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.

The economical back ground and the    Social level of the student’s families

    The children’s of the parents’ who are doing government jobs, education level is going up words. It is a normal trend. According to research there are about 37% of such students in this area. The rest of the 60% must take forward through the education. It is a challenge for the teachers.

    In this amen the student’s who fail the  
      G.C.E. (O/L) examination is very rarely to
      go for higher education.
              The reason for that is not having an 
      educational background at these houses.
      So these people want a great. help to
      increase their lifstatus.

      two parallel classes. But there are no
      Parallel classes for gander 2,3,4,5.
