Our motto, In Gaudio Serviamus – translates as – may we serve joyfully. We are here at the service of others: the Church, our school, our families, friends and our wider society. We wish to serve everyone cheerfully.
Our school shield is an oak leaf and acorn within a circle of twelve stars. The oak is symbolic of strength and the acorn symbolises the fact that we start small. We build our strength step by step as we progress in virtue and likeness to Christ. In the words of St Paul: “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace which is in Christ Jesus.”
(2 Tim 2:1).
The stars symbolise The Blessed Virgin Mary in the Book of Revelation (12:1). “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”
