Students who studied at Colégio de S. Tomás continue their journey all over the outside world, personifying the call to be a blessing for the world.
Where are they now?
Colégio de S. Tomás gave me: development of a working method, encouragement and motivation, adaptability and curiosity. It gave me friendships that have lasted to this day, and which will certainly last much longer.
If in nine years at this place it is possible to highlight one lesson we have learned, this is without doubt an interest in reality. I say this for the simple fact that it was from this interest that all the many other aspects which made me as a man and a student came from.
S. Tomás gave me an excellent education and gave me the skills to respond to any challenge that I may have in my professional life and beyond.
CST is not afraid to do things differently - but still well. During my three years in High School I highlight the freedom and curricular demands that allowed me to pursue various intellectual interests, and that made the transition to University easy; the dedication of teachers and directors; and initiatives such as the science fair, the debating contest, and the Assemblies. No less important it was a home where I grew up, and where it is always good to return.
S. Tomás is a home away from home and gave me a sense of persistence and desire to be the protagonist
Colégio de S. Tomás gave me a broad-ranging and full education, which I make use of every day in a way I never thought possible."
The demands and the broad curriculum at CST allowed me to easily adapt to different realities that I encountered throughout my international experiences, both as a student and as a person.
Around the World
At Colégio de S. Tomás I always felt encouraged to pursue the best education that the university world had to offer, whether in Portugal or in any part of the world.
The years in which I studied at S. Tomás made me want more from myself, from my course, and from my future. This led to me concluding my course abroad. It also taught me to be patient, to wait, but also to take risks - essential factors that keep me happy and fulfilled outside my country, far from what I know.
The requirements and extensive curriculum of CST meant I was easily able to adapt to the different realities that I encountered throughout my international experiences, as a student and as a person.
S. Tomás exposed me to and put forward a specific way of life, which is a Catholic and Christian way, and I am grateful for it having done so. I recall especially three teachers/friends, among others, Leila, Ana and Simon who help me even now (and perhaps they don’t know how much help me) to be the person I am and in trying to be the person I want to become. I’d also like to leave a word of friendship to my friends Fr. João Seabra and Isabel Almeida and Brito, who are great fishers of men. At least they were for me!
