Language teaching program is the very first community service Sinhalese Cultural Forum started in 1992 in Parramatta. soon after two other schools started in Eastlakes and Campsie.   The number of schools as well as the number of students in the program has been steadily increasing.

The language teaching in these schools is well supported by the numerous cultural activities organised by the Sinhalese Cultural forum, such as the combined school concert,  Miyesi Rangana variety show,  Mahawamsa cultural exhibition and annual Ministers Award program.

Main focus of Sinhala Language Teaching Program is help and support Sinhalese children to understand and practice social and cultural values preserved through 2500 years the Nation’s history and help Sinhalese children to acquire their rightful place in their newly adopted country.
