  • Overview

The school was established in 1917 by the late Mrs. Jeremias Dias as the Buddhist Girls College in a house called 'The Firs' in Turret Road, Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was the desire of Mrs Jeremias Dias to train the school girls according to the Buddhist moral values and principles. In 1927 it moved to its present premises in Vajira Road, Colombo and was named Visakha Vidyalaya(Visakha College) by Lady Herbert Stanley the wife of the Governor of Ceylon at that time. Science subjects were introduced to the curriculum in 1946, for the first time in a girls school in Sri Lanka. [1]
