School Anthem

Vidunena Guna Mini Kirana bedagena
Dina Dina Didulana Lowa Dakinem
Sitha Matha Bethimal Pokuru Nelagena
Janapathi Vidu maw paada wadim

Helasuru Helawiru Hela wikuman Saru
Daruwan Dinu Matara Piyase....
Yali Yali nena heli peheli karannata
Apata Waram denu mena nolase

Vidu nena….. 

Vidukiri Sisilen sitha sathapagena
Udu guna saru daruwan wilase....
Mathu mathu guna mini muthu amunannata
Apata waram denu mena nolase

Vidu nena…..
