The College Motto

The College Motto ‘Esto Perpetua’ was used since the early days of the inception of the college. This fundamental which is from Eton College England was introduced by our founder Bishop Chapman, who himself was an Etonian. This Latin motto when translated means ‘Be Thou Forever’.

It is worth mentioning that when the College was adopting the medallion of St. Thomas as the crest, the phrase ‘Pro Deo et Ecclesia’ was also being used under it. This in English means ‘For God and Church’.

Therefore the whole message of the College motto is that of a blessing of which S. Thomas’ may flourish forever for the betterment of God and His Church.
