A “thought-seed” sown in the fertile soil of a rich and creative mind has great potency. The purity, sincerity, love and good intentions of that mind act as nutrients to help that “thought-seed” to germinate, grow and flourish. With love and consistent care that plant will grow in stature. From this mature plant will bloom beautiful flowers to herald the expectant fruit. And fruit, as we all know is for the enjoyment of everyone.
The above analogy serves to illustrate the story of the origin and development of the Merebank Tamil School Society. Its humble beginnings germinated in the loving hearts of a band of community-conscious and dedicated individuals who are the pioneers of this organisation which has seen 75 years of real progress.
Trials and tribulations were there naturally, but the march forward towards their goal was never abandoned because of hurdles. Hurdles were slowly but surely surmounted. There was a remarkable cohesive spirit and a deep sense of loyalty and unity among those early stalwarts. Many of these marvellous pioneers have, sadly, passed on to the beyond. A few are fortunately, still with us. They have served and are serving with not the least bit of diminishing ardour or dedication. This is indeed a unique band of men. The present grand edifice, the MTSS Hall and all its facilities stand as a glowing reflection of the spirit and devotion of all those great personalities who created, nurtured diligently and brought to fruition this esteemed organisation.
