Oval-egg presents a similarity to the old crest of the St. Theresa’s Convent School in terms of shape. The egg symbolizes the security of an embryo.
The oval egg is surrounded by the name of the school – Immaculate Conception on top and Catholic School at the bottom. In the past St. Theresa’s Convent School became colloquially known as “Convent School” and St. Joseph’s Primary became “Roman School.”
THE TWO CROSSES
The two crosses represent the two schools, St. Joseph & St. Theresa, which are now merged. The crosses are not only representative of the old schools but they are integral part of the new school’s mission and vision for its stakeholders.
THE CENTRE – MOTHER AND THE CHILD
In the centre of the crest is a symbol of a mother looking at a child which has multiple meanings:
First it symbolizes Virgin Mary and Child Jesus – since the school is called Immaculate Conception – Marian motive and name.
Secondly, the strong unity of the mother and child is implied since they are connected together through body and soul. Those feelings of mutual respect, care and love between Mary and Jesus; teacher and child; parent-child are symbolized.
Thirdly, it symbolizes the watchful eye of the teacher and parent over the child. We would like the teacher – parent – student relationship to be strengthened and highly upheld in ICCS and expect there to be a high level of involvement of parents in our school.
