Coat of Arms & Motto


 The Motto, from Lucretius, translates; 
“They hand on the Torch of Life”

The School was granted its present Coat of Arms by the College of Heralds in 1932.

The open book represents the Bible; the stars are those of the Southern Cross; the shell represents the connection between the School and St. James' School, from whose funds the School was founded; while the Torch refers to the School's motto.
