As a Marist school founded by the Marist Sisters, the College is under the special protection of Mary. In Mary, we find the qualities of truth, diligence and honour, and the College’s motto – Virtus Super Omnia (Goodness Above All) – calls us to work towards those same qualities.
Our colours are those in which she is often depicted – blue and white – the upper dexter and lower sinister sections having a blue background and the other two sections a white one.
They are separated by lines forming a cross – the symbol of Christianity.
In the upper dexter section there is a small dove carrying an olive branch and a lily. This scene represents peace and wholehearted commitment to God. The tower in the upper sinister section signifies strength and courage. The book in the lower sinister section reminds us of our obligation to use the talents God has given to each of us, for His Glory and for the good of ourselves and others.
At the top is the Marist symbol: the coronet of stars and the intertwined A and M from Ave Maria, the opening words of the ‘Hail Mary.’
