principal's Message

"Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations"

St Thomas Residential School aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where gifted and talented students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life. Students will be challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop creativity, confidence, and resilience to become independent and ethical life-long learners. Learning begins in the womb and ends in your tomb. It is a lifelong process. Morals and values are formed at an early age and it is very hard to change them once a person is a fully grown adult. Don’t teach kids how to count but teach them what counts the most. Teach them 1. Generosity 2. Politeness 3. Integrity 4. Effort 5. Gratitude  6. Faith 7. Kindness  8. Positive attitude 9. Compassion 10. Discipline. Through our life experience, create an environment that is open and positive, 
help students feel that they are valued members of a learning community. Look forward to this new school year full of hope and promise that each and every child will be successful and productive members of the STRS family. We value igniting the spark of creativity and curiosity in our students, but we as educators, teachers, and staff will need your help and partnership as parents to make this happen. Children benefit greatly when parents take an active role in their child's education. It has been proven that when students have parental support at home, they enjoy their learning and school life even more. Students' attitude and perception of school improves, as they develop more self-confidence in their road to becoming, life-long learners and solid contributors to our community.
