As the very proud Principal of this outstanding and academically discerning girls’ Buddhist high
school of Gampaha, Sri Lanka, with a well-respected history of providing excellent educational
outcomes for gifted and talented young women since 1947 I warmly welcome you to the website of Rathnavali Balika Vidyalaya.
We support the selected, fortunate young individuals in our school for their wellbeing by
providing the ideal atmosphere that allows every student to thrive as they work towards
achieving their best personal performance. Moreover, we set high expectations for our girls and work hard to safeguard positive emotions across our school community, seeking to deepen their knowledge, provide enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also softly urging our girls out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges of the globalized world.
I am proud to mention that the school is blessed by an academic staff of 3 deputy principals,
and an assistant principal and teachers those who readily inspire the students to develop
creativity, confidence and resilience to become independent and ethical global citizens.
We instill in our girls a keen social conscience and the capacity to make ethical decisions while
giving them the opportunities to achieve excellence in academic , extra-curricular and sporting end eavours so that my staff and I, ever focus on encouraging them to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and without a debate, with the broader community too. Good intentions and often valiant efforts of parents, teachers and other well wisher groups such as the School Development Society and the Old Pupils’ Association have also been the precious contributors in our ascent towards success by encouraging and helping us more today, tomorrow and forever.
Always backed by the School motto ‘Karotha Budhdha Saasanam (Behave according to Buddhism)’ that is deeply embedded in the hearts of our students as they move ahead towing more accolades and awards, we offer a rich, holistic approach to education in Sri Lankan.
Buddhist tradition that is inspired by the life and teachings of lord Buddha and which has been refined over millenniums. Thus I have the privilege of witnessing wonderful children achieve this transformation to be the cultured and conscientious future citizens those who better realize their true potential with humble hearts and suitable ladies to be leaders and role models of society tomorrow.
They are the future. They come to love and accept themselves as they are, and to believe what is true; that they have much to offer this world through their own unique potential.
I am ever pleased to be the principal of this most outstanding school and to join hands with the
progress of the island by being the person who administers all the procedures for the
achievements of its goal. With the hope of celebrating the 75 th Anniversary of the school in the year 2022, I wish that the school may shine more and more with brilliance, serving the nation, incomparably and unbeatably for centuries ahead.
