The College Crest


Our College Crest was designed by our first principal, Sister Christopher Burrows in 1966. The crest has been updated several times, but retains the following elements:

  • The cross of Christ is in the centre symbolising that Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church are central to the College. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the culmination of his redemptive mission and the promise of salvation
  • The torch of faith lights the way to Christ. It is the light that guides learning at the College
  • PAX meaning peace is the motto that St Benedict practised and preached. It is also the motto of the College signifying our unity and solidarity with Christ and God through Benedictine spirituality in the Good Samaritan tradition
  • The grey section of the crest represents the road of life. The cross and the torch guide us along this road.
