St. Thomas’ Catholic International College, the first of its kind in Sri Lanka, is named after (late) Msgr. Thomas Cardinal Cooray, who performed the enormous task of uplifting the standard of Catholic education in Sri Lanka. It is also dedicated to Thomas the apostle who is the apostle of Asia. As another giant step taken by His Grace Most.Rev.Dr.Oswald Gomis (Archbishop Emeritus) to enhance the Catholic mission in the field of education in Sri Lanka the initial steps were taken as the foundation stone was laid to a primary building by Archbishop Emeritus, on the 7th of October, 2008 in the name of His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Cooray and St.Thomas the apostle the apostle of Asia. Very Rev.Fr.Ivan Perera had already made the preliminary plans which were concretized in these primary steps.
It is truly wonderful to see how the school has grown in recent years. From 1 little outdoor building to a whole complex with at the moment a whopping 888 children, a fully build church, sports fields and a 25m pool. Incredibly proud we are at Father Kennedy and his staff for all their achievements.
This is were we do it for!!
With great thanks to the OBS 't Montferland and Mytylschool Amsterdam Medi-Aid has been able to furnish the entire main school of Father Kennedy. They thought of everything, from chairs and tables to computers.
