Events

Devi Night Dinner Dance
Devi Night Dinner Dance is held annually by DBPPAA since its inception and is well attended by Devians, their families, friends and well wishers. While Devi Night is the main fund raising activity for the Scholarship Fund it also serves as a focal point for Devians to meet and enjoy themselves with their friends from Victoria and elsewhere in Australia. Devi night has earned a reputation with the Melbourne Sri Lankan community as a vibrant and popular event. It is imbued with a touch of class, style, elegance and glamour.

Founders Day Alms Giving
An alms giving is held to commemorate the Devi Founder’s Day during the month of March each year at the “Dhamma Sarana Buddhist Temple” Keysborough, Victoria. Alms, donations and pirikara are offered to the incumbent monks, in association with devotees participating in the “Sil Program” for the day. The event is attended by most of past pupils in grateful remembrance of all founders, teachers and fellow Devians who have contributed to the betterment of Alma-Mater and Devians.

Devi BBQ and Family Fun Day
This event is devoted exclusively for Devians, their families and teachers usually held in summer before Christmas. A variety of foods, drinks, games and fun-fare fills the day with Santa Clause making his festive appearance bearing gifts for the children. This offers a splendid opportunity for Devians to renew their old friendships and usher in the new.

Devi Blood Drive
As its very first community services project the Association was pleased to organise a group blood donation camp in February 2015 in collaboration with “Club Red the Australian Red Cross Blood Donation Society”. This event took place at the Red Cross Blood Donation Centre in Mt. Waverley, Victoria attended by many Devians, their families, friends and well-wishers.
