School Badge

A school badge is a symbol signifying the ideals and traditions of a school.

The motto at the top, Ad Astra, are Latin words meaning "to the stars",
signifying the desire to excel in the fields of school life and
this motto is meant to animate the hearts of all Josephians.

The Cross at the top left-hand corner symbolises the Catholic faith.

The Chinese characters below signify "benevolence",
which means we should be kind and helpful to others.

Next, there is the Lamp - it's the light of knowledge which
we endeavour to acquire, especially during our school years.

Finally, at the top right there is the "Lily of St Joseph",
signifying the purity of life and great Patron of our school.
