incorporating the South London Tamil School, is a premier Institute for Eastern Art and Culture. CAEA has provided excellent academic and vocational training in Eastern Music, Dance, Drama and Tamil Language for the last 30 years. While the institute imparts the artistic talents of Sri Lankan and Indian culture to the younger generations of UK-born Tamils, it also aspires to help them achieve the highest standards in the British way of life.
The academy was established in 1984 with just a few students taking classes in the Tamil language in YMCA. With teaching our mother tongue to local children being the primary purpose of the school, the name of South London Tamil School (SLTS) was created by the academy’s founding members.
The founding members wanted the school to be of long-term benefit to the entire community and hence set up the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) – a group of parents and teachers with diverse expertise constituted as committee members. For example, committee members with a particular interest in sports were responsible for organising extra-curricular activities, and members in the education sector took the responsibility of leading education etc.
In 1991 the school moved to South Norwood Adult Centre to accommodate the increase in admissions. The number of required classrooms also had rooms increased due to an expansion of subjects offered – now including cultural subjects in addition to Tamil.
