Our School Emblem

St_Justins_RGBThe design captures St Justin’s desire to understand the truth about God. It features the scriptures at the centre of the emblem. St Justin grew to love the bible and used his great knowledge to explain and defend the faith.

The cross both recognises Christ as the centre of our faith and also symbolises our connection to the local and universal Catholic Church as the school is an integral part of the local Parish and Diocese of Wollongong. 

The motto - Faith, Reason and Harmony is linked to St Justin's capacity to find harmony between faith and reason in his search for religious truth. 

The colour of the emblem is driven by red - the colour of martyrs, with the use of blue and green to represent the natural environment and world around us which is the locus of Gods revelation.
