Motto & School Prayer

The School Motto

The most commonly used form of the school motto is “Fervet opus in campis”. In full it is “Floreat collegium, fervet opus in campis”; May the college flourish, work is burning in the field.

 

The School Prayer

Bless O, Lord this College.
Create among us a spirit of comradeship and loyalty to one another.
When we are called to obey, let us obey with willingness.
When we are called to serve, let us serve with gladness.
When we are called to rule, make us rule with justice.
Drive away from us all ignorance and hardness of heart,
All things dishonorable and unclean.
Build us up in body, mind and spirit
Until we come to the full stature of the perfect man,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen
