Principal’s Message

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”— Malcolm X

Welcome to St. Thomas College of Teacher Education, Pala – a beacon of enlightenment and excellence since 1957. As the principal, it gives me immense pleasure to extend my warm greetings to all our stakeholders – students, faculty members, staff, alumni, and the community at large.

Founded under the heavenly patronage of St. Thomas, our college stands as a testament to the enduring values of quality education, cultural preservation, and service to society. Our motto, ’LUX AD ILLUMINANDUM’ means Light to Enlighten, encapsulates our commitment to nurturing individuals who not only excel academically but also serve as beacon of light in a world often shrouded in darkness.

Over the years, we have evolved into more than just a teacher training institution. We are a dynamic hub of learning, research, and community engagement. In 2022, we proudly attained the status of a research center in Education, a testament to our unwavering pursuit of excellence.

At St. Thomas College of Teacher Education, we believe in holistic education. Our well-equipped library, labs, value-added courses and cocurricular activities ensure that our students receive a comprehensive learning experience. We take pride in our disciplined yet cordial environment, where students are groomed not only for academic success but also for life.

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond the confines of our campus. We actively engage with nearby schools and the community, contributing to their development through various initiatives. Our alumni, with their unwavering support, serve as inspirations to our current students, showcasing the transformative power of education.

As we march forward, guided by our vision of enlightenment, excellence, and service through divine illumination, we remain steadfast in our mission to develop intellectually competent, morally upright, and socially committed teachers. Our goals and objectives serve as guiding stars, directing us towards creating a new generation of teachers who not only impart knowledge but also instill values and inspire change.

I invite you to join us on this journey of enlightenment and excellence, as together, we strive to make a difference in the world of education and beyond.
