Welcome Song by Prefects

This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It is not just because this song is special to me but the melody also helped it to be among my favorites. I am sure all the students of my school wanted to sing it but only a few got the chance in their life time because it is sung by only prefects on their investiture to welcome the guests. Here is the lyrics of the song.

Melody : Mr.Jayantha Dissanayake
Lyrics: Mrs.Arlene Perera


Warmly we welcome you Sir
Welcome ye we do..
With guests, teachers and children we welcome you..
Glad are we to have you here
To make our day so bright..
Welcome you Sir, gentlemen and ladies all a line//

A day we care and share
Prefects as we are.. prefects as we are…
Honoured Sir our pleasure’s great
We declare.. we declare…
Share the joy Prefects have achieved through the year..
Glad are we to have you here
Your presence as honoured..


We joyously sing and ring
The gladness of our hearts.. The gladness of our hearts…
To serve our alma mater
Prefects as we are.. Prefects as we are…
We joyously sing and ring
Your presence here today
Welcome ye Sir’s, guests, parents
Here do we say…..

School Anthem

School Anthem in English

Hail alma mater! Thee we pledge

To stand by ideals in us bred

Self discipline our foremost goal

The path of righteousness well thread

Throughout the years most faithful

You’ve to the nation service done

By molding us as citizens true

A pride we cherish in our hearts

In future too, may you always

Like a bright beacon bravely stand

Shedding your light to far off shores

Guiding the youth of Sri Lanka

With lasting love and loyalty

And ties so true and firm and string

For guiding us with love and care

Around you dear mother now we throng

Beloved school! We wish to thee

Fame and success in years to be

In our annals your worthy name

Will be inscribed for all to see

මෙහෙවර ප්‍රකාශය

මෙහෙවර ප්‍රකාශය

කෑගල්ල ශාන්ත ජෝශප් බාලිකා
විදුපියසින් සෙවන ලබන
සිසු දියණියන්ගේ මූලික
නිපුණතා වර්ධනය කිරීම තුළින්
ජාතික අධ්‍යපන අරමුණු
සාක්ශාත් කරගැනිම මගින්
දැනුම, ආකල්ප, කුසලතා සපිරි
විශිෂ්ට කාන්තා පරපුරක්
මව්බිමට දායාද කිරීම පිණිස
සුහදශීලි ඉගෙනුම් වාතාවරණයක් තුළ
විධිමත්, නොවිධිමත් හා අවිධිමත්
අධ්‍යාපන අවස්ථා ඇති කරලීම
අපගේ උදාර මෙහෙවරයි.



නව සහස්‍රයේ අභියෝගයන්ට මුහුණ දිය හැකි වූද
රටට, ජාතියට, ආගමට
ජීවය දෙන්නා වූද

ශ්‍රි ලාංකීය සංස්කෘතිය
අනාගත පරපුරට දායද කිරීමට
කැප වූද
ගුණ ගරුක, ආචාරශීලි හා
සදාචාර සම්පන්න වූද
පරිසර හිතකමී

වැඩ ලෝකයට උචිත
සමබර පෞරුශත්වයකින් හෙබි
විශිෂ්ට කන්තා පරපුරක් බිහි කිරීම
අපේ දැක්මයි.
