Ethos & Crest

The aims of the college and its expectations from its pupils are summed up in the symbolism of the college crest.

Below the name of the College the motto is inscribed : 

 

Orare Studere Agere 

Orare   means to pray. This emphasises that the first duty of each person in to grow in the knowledge and love of God.

Studere   means to study. This is more than applying ones self to books; it is the study of life in order to come to a better understanding of ourselves and our vocation.

Agere   means to act. This word points out that each pupil is expected to contribute by his action to the good of society what he has gained from his prayer and study.

The book depicted on the crest contains no writing. It represents the life of each pupil which will be filled in time by the achievements of his life.

The cross and shield emphasize that our faith will be our constant protection in life.
