School Emblem and Crest

rctk-logo.jpgFor Life, Love and Learning 

The school emblem and motto were developed  to give a modern symbol to the mission of our school. The emblem is an expression of the School Mission Statement.

The central figure represents the adult partners; teachers, parents and support staff, who are committed to the educational, personal and spiritual growth of each child at Christ the King School. The highlighted hearts symbolise the spirit of love and care that permeate the school’s approach to the education of our students.

Our motto, For Life, Love and Learning, is congruous with the emblem as it articulates our school goals. These goals are:

  • To develop in each child the thirst and skills for lifelong learning;
  • By our actions, to enable children to experience God’s love; and
  • To provide quality learning outcomes for each child.
The school crest incorporates the “Southern Cross” Badge of the Presentation Sisters, who began the school in 1937.

The Presentation Sisters are an extraordinary group of women who devoted their lives to the education of young children. The charism of the sisters, captured in the school motto “Facta non Verba” (Deeds not Words), is still evident in the life of Christ the King today. ​ ​
