ST. THOMAS THE PATRON OF OUR SCHOOL

St. Thomas, the Apostle of India, is our Patron. He was probably born in Galilee to a humble Jewish family. Inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus, Thomas became His follower and later on, even laid down his life for Jesus' sake. In the Holy Bible, though very little is mentioned about this great saint, his dynamic and courageous personality becomes very evident in a few occasions.

One of the outstanding characteristics of St Thomas was his inquisitive nature that sought a clarification for all that was beyond his understanding. In one of the instances in the Bible, we find Jesus foretelling his impending death to His closest disciples during the last supper, in a figurative language. Failing to grasp Jesus' reference to His death and resurrection, when the disciples sat bewildered, it was Thomas' question- *"Lord, we do not know where you are going; how do we know the way?"* - that provided Jesus an opportunity to teach one of the most profound truths of His ministry- "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."

While turning the pages of his life, one can easily perceive an untainted loyalty as the distinguishing mark of St. Thomas. He was willing to stand by Jesus in dangerous times. On another occasion when Jesus announced the intention of visiting his recently deceased friend Lazarus in Bethania, a few miles from Jerusalem and the worried disciples wanted to keep Jesus from going, for fear that He would be stoned, it was Thomas who boldly rallied the others to stay by their master, saying "Let us also go, that we may die with Him".


St. Thomas School

St. Thomas School, the pride of Chunar is a holy temple of knowledge where the young children are nurtured to unfold and grow the bundle of possibilities and potential latent in them by providing ample guided and facilitated opportunities and conducive environment. The school is the result of a dream that someone dared to dream. It was back in 2006 that Late Rev. Fr. Henry Suares initiated the process of establishing this portal of education. Since then the school has grown down the years under the able and skilled leadership of Fr. Walter D’Silva and Fr. Melwin Wilson D’Souza. Since 2019 the mantle of responsibility is placed on me to progress further what my predecessors had begun. I place on record the dedicated service rendered by the sisters of Congregation of Jesus down the years. The invaluable service given by the teachers in imparting knowledge and that of the supportive staff for the smooth running of the school too is humbly appreciated.

Daniel Webster has rightly said, ‘If we work on marbles, it will perish, If we work upon brass, time will efface it , If we rear temples, they will crumble into dust but if we work on immortal souls, if we imbue them with principles, with fear of the creator…
