History of St Thomas School

"The prosperity of the country depends not on its revenues, nor on its strength of fortification, nor on the beauty of its buildings and monuments but on its cultured and cultivated citizens, its man of education, enlightenment and character"-

St Thomas School is committed to impart holistic education. It realizes that the true order of learning should be: first, what is necessary, second what is useful and third what is ornamental. To reverse this arrangement is like beginning to build at the edifice from the top. Even, the most condemned of Russian dictators understood the value anc importance of education and rightly observed "Education is a weapon whose effect depends or who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."The weapon of S.T.S., is in the safe hands of saints and since saints are committed to spiritual advancement rather than materialistic gains: the weapon is aimed at ignorance, inertia, ill-health, self-centeredness and gross materialism. It aims at providing not only intellectual stimuli and academic distinction but also prepare its student to strive for the "Summum bonum" along with the development of self-reliance, self-discipline, self-sufficiency, emotional stability, cheerfulness and develop creative response to the challenges of the modern society full of relentless competition, ruthless materialism and restlessness due to its "Sick, hurry and divided aims". Schools are not jails where the child is imprisoned for a specific period of time. It is a temple of learning with the high ideal of the wisdom which liberates the individuals and inspires him to control and conquer the beast in him.

St Thomas School aspires to utilize modern scientific devices and make much of its innovations like Information technology.
