Manasa Sanvuta Dheera (Great are those who are serene in mind)


Girls' School

Established Date



Colombo, Sri Lanka


We will never bring disgrace to our school by
nor ever desert our sisters in need.
We will fight for the sworn ideals of
our school both alone & with many.
We will revere & obey our school laws, &

do our best to incite a like respect and reverence
in those about us who are prone to annul
them and set them at naught.

We will strive unceasingly to quicken
the public sense of civic duty & then in
all these ways will strive to transmit this school,
greater better & more beautiful than
it was transmitted to us............


Dedicated to the vision of providing society with scholars who are disciplined, educated, versatile and impeccable, Devi Balika Vidyalaya has proven to be an institution with a difference. Embellishing its motto, ‘Manasa Sanvutha Dheera’, our beloved Alma Mater has not only created scholars out of its pupils, but also created women who spear-head the prosperity of humanity.

Since its establishment in 1953, Devi Balika Vidyalaya has been a forerunner in the field of education, producing best results at the G.C.E. Ordinary Level and Advanced Level examinations. Yet, our school has been classified as the best girl’s school not only through remarkable results at examinations, but also with achievements in the fields of sports, arts, photography, music and other extra-curricular activities.

Mother Devi is not just another school, but it is a sacred ground that fortifies society with the best in all walks of life. In order to achieve this task the school has been blessed with an academic staff, that is dedicated to create a fulfilling citizen in a student.

Devi Balika Vidyalaya has fulfilled her responsibility to society by producing the best professionals in all fields and careers. Undoubtedly Devians have proven themselves to be ‘Unique from the Rest’.
