School Anthem

Our School is old in story
Her record fair as long
So, young and old and hoary,
Come join in rousing song!
Hurrah, again hurra-ah,
Hurrah, while still we say
Saint Thomas’ for ever,
Saint Thomas’ for aye!We boast not of our merit
All credit we disclaim,
Our pride is we inherit
A fair untarnished name.
We’ll endeavour to maintain it,
while deed and word proclaim
Saint Thomas’ for ever
Saint Thomas’ for aye!In playing field and class room
Our heads we’ll carry high,
We’ll yield no shred of honour
In loss or victory,
Then “Vinces” be our motto
“Perseverando” cry
Saint Thomas’ forever
Saint Thomas’ for aye!
Saint Thomas‘ we uphold her honour everywhere
Let east or west or north attest
That we are Thomians ture!
Whatever our estate
We unite to celebrate
The Chocolate and Light Blue!
Saint Thomas’ she is our proudest fondest boast
Our Hearts o ‘erfiow, our spirits glow
With pride and loyalty!
Her faithful children we,
Strong in unity
Until one day we prove the Pride of Lanka!

(This song was composed by the late Mr. L.A. ARNDT, a former Principal, 1931 – 1933)
