Dhamma & Sinhala Language School of Canberra


In 1991, few Sri Lankan parents started the Sunday School in Canberra to teach Sinhala language and Buddhism to their children. When the School commenced, there were only a few students without a permanent place to conduct classes using the Lyneham and Laos Buddhist temples. Since 1996, once the Sri Lankan temple in Kambah was commissioned, the Sunday School too functioned there.


At present we have more than 100 students enrolled in our school. We teach Sinhala language and Buddhism. Enrolments are open for any one who is interested in learning the Sinhala language or Buddhism.

The School that is held on Saturday starts at 2:30 pm and closes at 5:45 pm. Each class is 60 minutes long. There is a 15 minutes break in between Buddhism class and language class. During the break students are provided with refreshments that include biscuits and fruit juice.
