ABOUT US HISTORYSCHOOL CREST AND MOTTO

School Crest and Motto

The school motto, Ora et Labora (Pray and Work), was chosen by the second Headmaster, Edward Morris, in 1875.

Morris was an old boy of England's Rugby School. He exemplified the way the principles of the English Public School system were transplanted to Australia including that education and religion went hand in hand as envisaged by Bishop Perry.
