School Crest Information

.Admin
Last Updated: 30/07/2012


The green and red school emblem represents the colours of Western Australia's state floral emblem, the Kangaroo Paw.  The axes symbolise the Kalamunda area pioneers, as many of the first Europeans who settled in the hills were woodcutters.  The lines symbolize the Darling Range ‘Zig Zag’ Railway.

The motto “Seek Wisdom” which was adopted by the school many years ago is derived from the Greek tales - Chiron was a wise centaur who taught legendary heroes such as Jason and Achilles when they were children.  As an underlying principle, these children were taught that irrespective of their strength or power, they should continue throughout their life, to learn and improve their mind, thus seeking wisdom!
