The Motto

The College motto Ad Majora Natus, 'Born for Greater Things', emphasises that with continued effort we can look beyond ourselves to develop our skills, talents and capacities so that we can be of greater service to others.

The Badge

The badge is a crown with a lily passing through it, which are emblems of the nobility and holiness of our Patron, St Aloysius Gonzaga. The school has long lineage and noble connections. St Ignatius Loyola, a Spanish nobleman, founded the Society of Jesus in 1540.
