School Crest

The School Crest with a white circle surrounding a white cross, gold crown and the yellow "M" serves as a constant reminder of our call through Baptism to be Apostles - bearers of the Good News to all people.
The white cross reminds us of the Sacrifice of Jesus and that to be one of his followers, we must take up our cross daily to follow Him.
The letter "M" symbolises Mary - Mother of Jesus.  It is Mary who says to us "Do whatever He tells you".
The gold crown is a symbol of the Queenship of Mary.  We recognize Mary as Queen of Apostles by the example of the life she lived devoted to doing God's will and look to her as a leader and model. The circle which surrounds the cross, the crown and the letter "M" symbolises the Mystery of God - without beginning and without end - in whose image and likeness we are created and who we endeavour to serve.
