College Emblem and Motto

The emblem of the College dates back to the French Foreign Missionary Fathers who started an Institution of higher learning in the year 1882. It is made up of two scrolls, one scroll is placed above the crown, on which is inscribed the motto of the Institution in Latin – ‘Fide et Labore’ (faith and toil) and on the other scroll is placed beneath the palm leaves which bear the name of the Institution. The shield which bears a cross in the centre is symbolic of Christian faith. There are two bees on either side of the lower part of the cross representing hard and persevering work. The crown, which is placed above the shield, is a heraldic symbol of supremacy and glory. The compartment beneath the shield consists of palm leaves that are a sign of victory.

The College motto is ‘Fide et Labore’ which means ‘Faith and Toil’. Faith among other things gives persons a commitment to God, to his fellowmen, to intellectual pursuits. Toil is a necessary pre-requisite for any success.
