School Crest and Motto

Our School has been named after Our Lady of Lourdes and so our Crest has been designed on the events that occurred at Lourdes and the significance of this to our School.

Also, this Crest endeavours to capture the ‘essence’ of what is our School.

The band in the centre represents water: of the spring at Lourdes and the significance of water to the community in Dardanup.

The Church Window represents the Chapel requested by Our Lady to be built in the Grotto at Lourdes and also the Thomas Little Hall, the previous Church of our Community that is significant to our School.

The other symbols on our Crest that endeavour to capture the essence of the School are:

  • The Cross signifying our Christianity.
  • The Dove signifying love and innocence.
  • The Olive Branch signifying reconciliation and peace.
  • The Book signifying the Gospel, knowledge and wisdom.

Our School colours also hold significance to our Crest – White symbolises purity, holiness and joy and Blue symbolises Heaven, knowledge and contemplation.

Our School Motto is:

MULTAE MENTES COR UNUM
MANY MINDS, ONE HEART.

With Christ as its inspiration and guided by Gospel values, the School aims to develop a sense of worth, responsibility, respect for others and an ongoing love of God and of learning.
