SERVIAM – “I will serve”
This is the badge worn by every Ursuline pupil throughout the world.  The badge has seven stars.  These represent the constellation URSA MINOR, reminding us that St. Ursula is our heavenly patroness.  As ancient travelers used this constellation to find the North Star and so knew the direction they should travel, so we, by following the teaching we receive here, will find our way to God – the end of our journey through life.  The stars inspire us to set our ideals high and to be loyal to all we value and hold dear.  LOYALTY is a special characteristic of an Ursuline Student.

The cross shows that our school is Christian and we are ready to follow Jesus who teaches us how to be brave, to accept suffering and even death in order to be faithful to our values and ideals.  COURAGE is a special characteristic of an Ursuline Student.

The motto SERVIAM means that we will serve because we want to be like Jesus who said:  “I am a servant among you”.  We will serve because we recognize each person as a child of God.  A spirit of SERVICE is a special characteristic of an Ursuline Student.

Our badge is green and silver.  The colour green represents the virtue of hope which helps us to be brave in our moments of difficulty and enthusiastic about the future.  The colour silver reminds us to be always genuine and sincere in all that we do.  HONESTY is a special characteristic of an Ursuline Student.

This is our badge.  We wear it proudly and try to be faithful to the ideals it represents
