With construction ahead of schedule Principal Bill Hill notched up another important milestone when he revealed the schools branding and logo for St Lawrence of Brindisi Catholic Primary School, Weir Views.
While Covid restrictions prevented a bigger community celebration, Bill was able to reveal the new logo alongside recently appointed Deputy Principal, Caroline Madigan and Administration Officer Emma Van Der Heide and her son, who will be attending St Lawrence next year.
Principal Bill said the logo is bright and contemporary, reflecting the new school community which will be a place of learning and welcome for all. The main purple colour in the school brand represents creativity, wisdom and peace which will be critical principles in the culture of the school.
The $6 million stage one construction of St Lawrence is ahead of schedule and on track to be completed by November.
“The logo has been carefully designed to be easily understood and to promote the vision and story of our school community,” Bill said.
“The central image of St Lawrence connects us the Capuchin Minor order, the Franciscan order to which St Lawrence belonged. Within his image is the Tau cross, a central icon in the Franciscan Order.”
“With his arms open wide, St Lawrence reflects the culture of welcome we present to others. The light surrounding him represents both the light of faith and the light of learning as in our motto, ‘A light to the mind and a fire to the will.’
The image of the book in our logo connects us to St Lawrence as a man of learning. The book reflects our school as a place of learning; a culture founded on developing a love of learning in our students, staff, and parents. The curve at the bottom of our logo reflects the ‘Horizons of Hope,’ that shapes our diocesan educational framework,” Bill said.
Letters of offer for enrolments have been sent out to families for the children enrolling at St Lawrence in 2022 though the school is still accepting enrolment enquiries.
The school is located at 31 Waterway Boulevard in the Weir Views estate. It is part of the Parish of St Anthony of Padua, Melton South and will work closely with sister school, St Anthony’s Primary School.
