Badge Meaning

Aliis Prodesse Discimus “We learn to serve others”

The Latin motto epitomises the purpose, aim and driving power of our School.

Bible: The Bible occupies the centre and is a symbol of the spiritual activities which are the main distinguishing feature of Christian education. It stands for the emphasis we place on the Word of God as a rule of faith and the living spring of spiritual growth.

Arm: It is the purpose of our School to produce not only keen Bible students but also practical, healthy citizens. In manual work we find recreation and mental refreshment. Equally valuable are the sense of self-respect and independence engendered by a task well done and the lasting satisfaction of a skill acquired.

Lamp: As a symbol of intellectual enlightenment the lamp holds an honoured place. Christian education trains learners to think clearly, constructively and independently.

Torch: Having received a well-balanced education, a training which imparts spiritual strength, physical prowess and mental acumen, there is placed in our hands the flaming torch of truth, a symbol of the rich legacy of honoured predecessors. Filled with a sacred responsibility to them and to our fellow men, we carry that torch to dispel the darkness of ignorance, prejudice and fear.

HPS: The initials HPS stand for Helderberg Primary School.

Mountain: The mountain stands in our minds for steadfastness and vision, for from its rugged height we scan wide horizons beckoning us to service.

Stars: Before Helderberg came Spion Kop College and Union College. Their experience and example have been as guiding stars and will continue to inspire us as we tread the path of Christian education.

Crown: Over the whole rests the royal symbol of achievement, the golden crown. We strive for that incorruptible crown which is the final reward of Christian endeavour.
