About Us - School Motto & Emblem

School Motto 

 
Our motto - "Called to Serve" - is a reminder that we, like St. Peter, are called to follow Christ by serving each other. Being called to serve is an invitation given to each of us when we were Baptised. It is in responding to and accepting this invitation that each child, teacher and parent begins to appreciate the uniqueness and giftedness which we have, and offer to each other. The story of our motto is discovered in the Scripture story of "the footwashing". (John 13 1-9)
 
School Emblem
 

The school emblem, depicted on the school badge, represents an 'Aboriginal Shield' and has been chosen as a symbol of the emblem worn by the Presentation Sisters who founded our school, but whose first ministry was to the people who lived in remote and isolated areas of Queensland. The hands are a symbol of the love and care which we treasure in our school communtiy.
