Crest of our
school

Where over 120 years of history embrace the future …

The Crest

  • The star is the symbol of light, guidance and instruction.

  • The Cross is a symbol of Christ.

  • The Circle is a symbol of eternity and eternal value.

  • The Open Book indicates that learning should be brought to the young. The Alpha and the Omega are a reminder that God is the “first and the last, the beginning and the end”, and that all knowledge begins and ends with Him.

  • The Motto, “Facere et Docere”, which means “To Do and To Teach”, reminds the Christian Brothers that their lives and their actions, by word and example, are a way of leading others in Christ’s way.

  • The Motto, “Age Quod Agis”, which means ‘do what you are doing’. More often translated as “do well whatever you do”. Literally translated, it means “do what you do”; figuratively it means “keep going, because you are inspired or dedicated to do so”. It is the motto of the Christian Brothers’ Order in South Africa.
