The “Crest” bears the colors purple and white which represents the Episcopal colours and speaks of our religious connections.
Purple was the color of the Roman Empire and was used by the Greeks to honor their Olympic heroes.
The pineapple symbolizes the field of labor and fruitfulness, the dog, the animal of loyalty, fidelity and watchfulness.
The book represents the Bible and academics.
The Latin motto, “Fortis Cadere Cedere Non Potest” translates into “The Brave May Fall but Never Yield.”
The crest was design by Mr. Frank Cundall, then Curator at the Institute of Jamaica to mirror the school’s ideals and philosophy.
