Hockey was initially introduced to S. Thomas’ Preparatory School in the year 1939. However, along the way, the sport was discontinued until the year 2017 when it was re-introduced by Mr. Jayamanna.

Hockey practices are held weekly on Mondays and Fridays. On Mondays, practices are held at the Astro Turf Grounds from 3pm – 5pm. Transport is provided from school to the Astro Turf Grounds and the students are accompanied by one of the Teachers-In-Charge Mrs. Anne Arnold/Miss Malithi Munasinghe.

On Fridays, practices are held in the School Grounds from 2pm – 4pm.

Hockey practices are conducted under the guidance of our coach Mr. H.M.C.H. Bandara, who also coaches the Senior Hockey Team of S. Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia, and the MAS Holdings Hockey Team.
