School Logo & Crest

 

Something that you and your children see and touch each day is our school logo and motto. The school logo challenges us to look outward into the larger world, where the love growing in our hearts, reaches out with compassion to embrace all of life.


What the symbols represent

The cross

The cross symbolizes Jesus’ ultimate act of compassion. Mother Teresa Primary will be a Christ-centred community seeing its mission, like Mother Teresa, to bring dignity and compassion into the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. To seek, like Christ, the poor, the outcast and those who are seen as unloved.

“The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for and deserted by everybody. The greatest evil is the lack of love and charity, the terrible indifference towards one’s neighbour….” (Blessed Mother Teresa)

The heart

“We can do no great things-only small things with great love.” (Blessed Mother Teresa)

The heart is a powerful ancient symbol. The school will nurture the spiritual life of each of its members to develop a loving community based on respect, justice, honesty, integrity and hope. The heart also provides a strong connection with our Parish community and our ‘sister’ school, Sacred Heart Primary.

The 'dual heart' symbol represents our desire to be connected to the ever-embracing heart of our loving God. The outward direction of the cross from the heart shows that to be Christ-like is to be of service to each other and show care for our world.                                                            


Our Motto

Creative Minds

“Fulfilling potential is not about busyness it is about being synergetic…. Being synergetic is recognizing the unique combination of gifts and talents that every individual has and working with these to bring out the genius within.” (Mark Treadwell)

The students of today and tomorrow must have the skills to survive and the creativity to thrive in a world characterised by continuous change and global citizenship. In each student we need to develop the capacity to become creative, independent learners able to assess his or her learning needs and develop learning skills to meet those needs.

Gentle Hearts

“As you think in your heart, so you are” (Prov. 23:7).

The students will require compassionate attitudes and values to participate in a world that is both multi-faith and multicultural. The school will practise Christian meditation (‘Prayer of the heart’) to develop a contemplative and compassionate spirit in the whole school community.
