SICUT APIS OPEROSA
(as busy as the bees)
The school emblem depicts a beehive with bees
and the motto "Sicut apis Operosa" (as busy as bees). The hive symbolises the school community in which students
like single cells are cemented together to form one harmonious
A hive speaks of perfection in symmetry. Students are called
upon, under the guidance of their teachers to strive for excellence
academically and in all spheres.
Bees in a colony transform nectar from various flowers into
honey. So each Annite should discover and develop her potential
to the fullest, utilizing to the maximum all the opportunities
offered in this school with the goal of becoming equipped to
fulfil effectively in life the mission chosen for her by God.
Bees work in co-ordination. So each student should learn to
appreciate the uniqueness of others and to co-operate in perfect
team spirit to build a community of love now in the school,
and later in society. Like honey the students are called upon
to be gentle instruments of healing and joy through their generous
In this way it is the aim of the school to form the students
into responsible adults who in their journey through life,
nourished by the nectar of God's presence within them, will
work with others to build "a civilization of love" -
a foretaste of our Eternal home where we shall drink together
the Divine Amruth.
