  • S. Thomas' College, Mount Lavinia, is an Anglican selective entry boys' private school in Sri Lanka. Started as a private school by Rt. Rev. James Chapman, the first Anglican Bishop of Colombo, in 1851, it was founded as a college and cathedral for the new Diocese of Colombo of the Church of Ceylon, modelled on British Public school tradition. An old boy of Eton College, Bishop Chapman founded the college on the Etonian model, the school's motto of Esto Perpetua being derived from that of Eton College. Following the public school tradition, S. Thomas' College is a partial boarding school, with some pupils living at the school seven days a week, and others residing in Day houses. Having been founded in 1851, it is among the oldest schools in Sri Lanka. With a student body of approximately 2800, S. Thomas' is considered as the most prestigious school in Sri Lanka. A factor leading to its competitive rivalry with Royal College, Colombo. This rivalry has led to a Royal–Thomian tradition with the annual Royal-Thomian Rugby Encounter and the Royal Thomian Regatta. The college has educated prime ministers, world leaders, sportsmen and Booker Prize winners. Alumni of S. Thomas' College are referred to as Old Thomians, and include D. S. Senanayake, the Head Mudaliyar of Ceylon, Solomon Dias Bandaranaike, and three other Prime ministers. Many of the prominent leaders of the independence movement in the early twentieth century were educated at the college. These include Leslie Goonewardene, who founded Sri Lanka's first political party, the Lanka Sama Samaja Party and N. M. Perera, who served as leader of the opposition and the first Trotskyist to become a cabinet minister. (en)
