The Buddhist Society was founded with the aim of providing an opportunity to practise Buddha’s preachings in the school community. To enhance and nurture the Buddhist spirit that lies within the students, the society organises various events within the course of the school year. The ‘Bakthi Gee’ programme is an annual upcoming event that comprises a combination of songs and drama that depicts and spreads awareness of the stories and life lessons that can be learned through Lord Buddha’s journey to attain a peaceful life, in other words ‘Nirwana’.
In addition, the society hosts an annual full-day Sil programme at the Gangaramaya Temple to enlighten and actively practise Buddha’s teachings. The society also conducts donation projects to help communities-in-need with the participation of students who volunteer to donate the relevant items required. In hopes of inculcating good values the Buddhist society hopes to further continue and introduce projects for all school students, regardless of religion.
