Thomas More College is a South Australian Roman Catholic co-educational, secondary school established in 1979. Its catchment area is the northern Adelaide, Parishes of Salisbury, Elizabeth North, Elizabeth South, Gawler, Virginia and Para Hills. It was named after St. Thomas More, the English lawyer, polemicist, politician and martyr. Its motto, “God’s Servant First”, is from the saint himself. He accepted death, ordered by King Henry VIII, rather than go against his conscience and God. King Henry VIII also persecuted and imprisoned Protestants, and was responsible for various of them being burnt alive.
