Origin and History
Trinity lyceum, a name unique and novel blossomed in the mind of His Lordship, Rt. Rev. Dr. Jerome M Fernandez. Three circles representing the three entities of the Holy Trinity are joined together to represent the unity and oneness of Father, Son and Holy spirit of the Holy Trinity. The word ‘Holy’ is inscribed on our emblem to glorify the eternal chanting of “Holy, Holy, Holy ” by legions of Angels to adore the Almighty. Aristotle’s school near the Temple of Appollo in ancient Greece was called Lyceum. His lordship gave the name ‘Lyceum’ for this temple of learning to draw inspiration, grace and strength from the Holy Trinity. Our emblem contains ‘OM’, the most sacred word to express the idea of the Supreme Being. It symbolises Brahmam under its three modalities of the Past, Present and Future. This temple of learning took shape in the year 1966 for moulding up students for priesthood. Our strive towards excellence in education started in a humble manner in the seminary but later we shifted to our present location. The school began functioning in a two- storeyed building with ten classrooms and an office room. The old building was named in the fond memory of the late visionary and successful business man, Mr.Prabhakara Gerald walter. It was affiliated to the ICSE board and XI ISC course began under the stewardship of Late Rev.Fr. Elias Lopez. After a few years of meritorious service, Rev. Fr. Lopez handed over the baton to Chev. S. John. Even though the school was started for students striving to attain priesthood, it is now opened for students of all denominations. Now Trinity lyceum stands tall with sixty classrooms , 4000 students ,119 teachers and 34 non teaching staff members, striving strenuously towards excellence and creating great minds.
