“The Chapel has always stood on the central high point of S. Thomas’ College. My hope is that it will continue to be the focus of the spiritual and moral life of the school and continue to inspire future generations of Thomians.”
– Rt. Rev’d Duleep de Chickera – Bishop of Colombo (2001-2010)
“My only wish is that this school which we all love so much, which is our precious possession, will go on from strength to strength.”
– Rev’d Canon R. S. De Saram – 10th Warden (1932-1958)
“The real end of all education, is not to sharpen the intellect or improve the mind alone, but to form the character of the future man, to mould his habits, to fix his principles, and to make him good as well as wise and no system which aims at less than this, which would take any standard short of it, can be worthy of our esteem.”
– Bishop James Chapman - Founder
“Of course, education is not limited simply to developing these cognitive capabilities, but much broader in purpose, in improving our capacities to learn, communicate, reason, and other socialization skills such as adherence to law and order and living as a community."
