Our Traditions

As the College has evolved and grown since its opening in 1970, so has the symbolism of our crest. The underlying theme that links the fours corners is our calling to be children of God, journeying towards our goal.

We journey in the security of freedom and joy, under the banner of the Southern Cross. The letters JJJ on the Josephite Cross stand for Jesus, Joseph and John the Baptist who embody prophetic spirit and strong commitment. As each day ends we take all this and go forth into the setting sun.

The colours of our emblem – red, green, yellow and white – connect us to our local community and our world.

The colour red represents the richness of our soil and the lifeblood of birth. the green symbolises the growth and production that occurs in our local market gardening community. It represents creativity, life, hope, compassion and the centredness of the earth.

Yellow, emanating from the sun, is the light of the world which nurtures, sustains and generates energy and warmth.

The yellow sun is the source of life, Christ’s light, the Divine consciousness and faithfulness. The sun’s rays focus and concentrate on the energy of Christ’s light. Truth, purity and strength are represented by white.
