Crest & Motto
Our beautiful crest was designed to incorporate and acknowledge both our historical and environmental connections as well as our vision for the future.
It reflects our connection with St Aloysius Girls College, Hamilton in its shape and the predominant colours of teal and navy.
Our cross is a stylised version of the Mercy Cross recognising the dedicated years of service to Catholic education by the Sisters of Mercy, particularly in the Morpeth and Maitland region.
The sun is a symbolic representation of the Jesuit symbol in recognition of the role of the Jesuits in St Aloysius' life. However, both of these symbols are new and different in celebration of our exciting beginning as a new school.
We have incorporated a river/pathway representing both the Hunter River and our faith journey and pathway as lifelong learners.
The Hunter River was crucial to the development of this region - particularly Morpeth.
The gum leaves and blossoms are symbolic of the predominant native tree of the region - the spotted gum and our focus as an ecologically sustainable school.
Its modern design is symbolic of our contemporary approach to learning and teaching.
We are Called
Our school motto "We are Called" encompasses St Aloysius' calling as well as being broad enough to encompass all sorts of callings; challenging us to discover and share our unique gifts as we build a Catholic community together. We are Called... to care for the earth, to be the best people we can be, to be compassionate to those who are suffering, to name a few.
In the words of the hymn by the same name: "We are called to act with justice, we are called to love tenderly, we are called to serve one another and walk humbly with God."
