About Bolawalana Ave Maria Convent
Who we are
The welfare board which consisted of parents of the students of that school discussed with the then General Manager of Catholic schools Rev. Fr. Ivan Perera and the then Archbishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Nicholas Marcus Fernando to find out a solution to the heavy demand for admissions. After series of lengthy discussions over a few years, the Archbishop agreed to donate Rs. 1.0 Million and a 2.0 acre land to the AMC Welfare Board to start an Ave Maria Branch School at Akkarapanaha.
Let us raise our voices sweetly
Let the bells of joy ring clear
Here’s a pledge of faith unbroken
To the school we hold so dear
At thy side we children gather
Mother dear so pure and fair
Guide us on to Christ our saviour
Keep us in the love and care
Ave Maria ///
Hail Mother dear
Steadfast, loyal, true and noble
Let us cherish all that’s right
Holy Spirit, lead us onward
In thy light let us see light
We shall march to greater glory
In the years that are to be
Working, praying, hoping trusting
In our Lord eternally.
Message from Sister Principal
An experienced and highly skilled and committed staff works collaboratively to deliver quality education for our students. Each child who arrives in Bolawalana Ave Maria Convent, comes with their own individual challenges which have reached the point where they can no longer cope well in their mainstream setting, despite the good intentions and often valiant efforts of parents, teachers and other health professionals.
May God Bless You!
Rev. Sr. Sirima Opanayake
