The School Badge

Scientia et Sollertia - Knowledge and Skill

The motif represented by the associated bearings can be related to the principle at which a regulator functions.

A regulator is used to create co-operative dynamics within various technological fields. A gyroscope, which indicates stability in all circumstances, also functions on this principle.   The motif can also indicate an atom - a powerful source of energy.

The three bearings also symbolize the ideal educational relationship between learner, parent and educator.

Mobirise

The motif also indicates through its three interconnected lines, the inner dependence of the three core facets wherein the school operates namely, the sciences, humanities and technology.


The three bearings also represent the three facts in technical education which are interalia, development, manual skills and spiritual development.
