6-6-1966, a red letter day in the annals of the MTCES, when a star fell from heaven to enlighten generations of children. Prompted by the pilgrim fathers, the STRS took shape. Paul planted, Apollo watered, but God caused the growth ( I Corinthians 3:6). St. Thomas Residential School affiliated to the council for the ICSE is nothing short of destiny’s child, its name and fame reaching the far corners of the world; its aroma filling and blessing anyone it touched. A mega monolith with 3000 children and 124 teachers, it started with six students in a rented building in the heart of the city. From its modest beginning it is now housed in a sylvan surroundings in a smoke and plastic free environment in 30 acres of the green Mukkolakkal heartland. The school can be proud of its modern computer lab, a chapel in the Anglo Saxon mould, other sister schools St. Thomas Central School and St. Thomas Higher Secondary School and a B.Ed. College . The Campus has hostels for both boys and Girls. Our pride is the St. Thomas Tower where the offices of the MTCES are.
Quality education is imparted to the students based on sound Christian values. The school is now forty three. It is now growing from strength to strength. It has churned out international and national figures and each one has a story to tell, May the genial grace of God surround our school and bless us always.
