School Crest and Motto

The School crest was designed by Robin Dods, a well known Brisbane architect. It represents wisdom standing upon the book of knowledge holding the lamp of truth over the School motto “Honour before Honours” which dates back to the School’s foundation.

The colours of the School badge are blue, green and white. Blue is associated with loyalty, green is associated with the foliage of a plant, and hence with growth, and white represents purity.

Our School Motto, Honour before Honours, presents a challenge, in a competitive and materialistic society, to maintain the highest personal standards of integrity, and to regard ideals of behaviour and achievement as more worthwhile and important than the applause of a crowd.
