St Thomas the Apostle School Crest

 

This is the motto we have proudly taken for our school.

The Cross, Book and the words "I am the Way" on the School Crest are symbols of our school's aims.

The cross reminds us of our salvation and the purpose of our being, while the words of Christ spoken to St Thomas "I am the Way" encourages us to follow the leadership of Christ.

The symbol of the book may be seen as reference to the gospel values which are the foundation of our educational programmes as well as a symbol of learning.

It was at the Last Supper when Jesus said to his disciples - "You know the way that leads to the place where I am going" that Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going; so how can we know the way to get there?" Jesus answered him,  " I am the way, the truth and the life ; no-one goes to the Father except through me".

 

St Thomas the Apostle School Prayer

Jesus,

You are the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Open our hearts to your love.

Help us to be true to you and to each other.

Give us the courage to be your disciples

in all we do and say.

Thank you for our school community,

a place of wonder, learning and peace.

Unite us with St Thomas when we say

“My Lord and My God”     Amen
