Crest & Motto

Our school motto is drawn directly from the Charism of the school’s founding Order, the Dominican Sisters. Empowered by the gifts of the spirit, we seek truth, defend freedom and promote justice.

Our motto is ‘Veritas,’ which is Latin for Truth. It encourages us to not only be truth seekers but to proclaim that “truth fearlessly and confidently".

Our school crest is inspired from the crest of the Dominican Order, however instead of the traditional black and white, it utilises the colour green; the colour chosen by the sisters for the school uniform, and the trim of yellow; the colour selected more recently to complement the green.

The shield, cross and star are all connected to the life of St Dominic and represent the courage it can take to live a life in VERITAS.
