Default Mr. V. D. Paul Raj (1957-1964)

Mr. V. D. Paul Raj (1957-1964)

Mr.V.D.Paul Raj was appointed as Headmaster of S.Thomas' Preparatory School in 1957. Here too he threw
himself into his tasks and duties with such vigour and determination that in a short time he reorganised the
school and put it on a firm footing, after winning over staff and parents with his charm and tact. The present
Chapel at St.Thomas' is also another building he helped to put up. Despite all these secular activities, the
late Mr. Paul Raj found time to render unto God's by being an active lay preacher in the Methodist Church.
He retired from St. Thomas' College, Bandarwela in May 1964, thus bringing to a close nearly forty years of
devoted service as a teacher who had an uncanny knack of finding time to do almost everything he wanted.
The late Mr. V.D. Paul Raj is no more. But his dedication to serve the society in which he lived will remain a shining example to
everyone. As a teacher, he was much more than a copy-book impression of rectitude with cane in hand and corrective punishment at
heart; for he packed into one lifetime the service of many. He shall live forever an inspiration to all those who love hard work.
