School Crest

4c.jpg

Our school badge is meant for all Canossian Schools. On a dark-blue background there shines a four-pointed star with rays cast on to a book symbolizing the Star of wisdom radiating on Knowledge.

The star is a symbol of lofty ideas stirring a person to great and noble deeds.
The star represents four basic social virtues – Truth, Justice, Love and Freedom

Truth: 
Sincerity in words and deeds, simplicity, straightforwardness.

Justice: 
Honesty, fairness, respect for the right of others.

Love: 
We are the children of the same Father in heaven.
Hence, readiness to help and share with others.

Freedom: 
Mutual tolerance and consideration for the principles of others.

The Crown above the crest symbolises the supremacy of God over all and All for the Glory of God.

On the crest is the motto for all Canossian School – VIA VERITAS VITA.

School Song

School Song

United in common endeavour
At work, at play, life's lessons we learn
Our youthful hearts are filled with ardour
For truth and wisdom we yearn

Chorus:
Courageously with heads held high
We march ever on through life
Schooled in your spirit, Canossa
For virtue, true nobility, we strive
Schooled in your spirit, Canossa
For true virtue we strive

Our alma mater, our guardian, our guide
Prepare our spirits for duty's call
Our country to serve with virtuous might
We stand for truth and for right

Chorus:
Courageously with heads held high
We march ever on through life
Schooled in your spirit, Canossa
For virtue, true nobility, we strive
Schooled in your spirit, Canossa
For true virtue we strive



School Creed


  As a Canossian pupil,      
I will go hand-in-hand with my fellow school mates
to make the school the best place
for learning, working and playing together.

I will serve in a humble way,
like our foundress, St Magdalene
and offer my love, care and concern
to everyone in need
 
I will prepare myself
to serve God, my country and family.
