History of Tadika St. Thomas’s Cathedral Kuching

Tadika St. Thomas’s Cathedral Kuching was founded in  January 1958. The kindergarten was started by a missionary, Miss Johnson. The then single storey wooden building housing the kindergarten was sited near the St. Thomas’s Cathedral Kuching.

The 1st Board of Management was headed by the then Dean, the late Bishop Datuk Made Katib, assisted by Vice Chairman Mrs. Roslind Chin, Secretary Mr. William Lee, Treasurer Mr. Matthew Soo, Auditor Mr. Dick Law and few other members.

The kindergarten was later shifted to the compound of St. Thomas’ Secondary School sited at the end of the road. It was a double storey building which house the many classes, a library, a staff room and a play room.

There is a big playground for the children to do outdoor activities and exercise. The compound is equipped with swings, monkey-bars and many others.

The children come from various races such as Chinese, Dayak, Malay and Indian and with various religious background.

The kindergarten has 10 staffs, 4 teachers and a headmistress, Mdm. Alice Hill.

The current Board of Management is headed by the Dean, The Very Rev’d Fr. Michael Buma Galami.

For the past 56 years, the school has produced many state leaders and we are proud of this record.
