School Motto and Crest
“If you hold to my teaching you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”— The School Motto “The Truth Will Set You Free”, is from John’s Gospel Chapter 8 v.31-32.
The Anchor is to remind us of Jesus as the anchor in our lives and Frederick Irwin’s ship (Sulphur) arriving at the Swan River Colony.
- The Ship reminds us of the arrival of the first settlers and the fact that Mandurah is a coastal community.
- The Book represents both the Bible and books of learning.
- The Lines represent two ideas: the ploughed paddocks of local rural community and the waves of the sea – the merging of land and sea.
- The Mitre is the Bishop’s mitre. The School is an integral part of the Diocese of Bunbury and therefore this symbolises the Church’s presence at the head of the Crest.
- The Colours are green and gold. Green is for the trees, lawns and gardens of the School and symbolises growth and well-being. Gold is for sunshine and is symbolic of light, generosity and perseverance.
