Crest and Motto
Against the scenario of darkness that has engulfed the human horizon due to ignorance, oppression, corruption, denial of justice and human rights, inhuman treatment of women, drugs, alcoholism, depicted by the dark background on the crest, there is light which dispels the gloominess of our world and herald’s joys and peace. It is the light of Jesus Christ, represented by the white host, who said, “He who follows me will not walk in darkness”.
The patron of our college, St. Andrew, conscious of the social dimension of the gospel, dared to share the light of Christ with others. His death is signified by the red diagonal Cross. The crest embodies our sincerity to enlighten the darkness that clouds our environment, by striving to live lives built on love and service.
Let St. Andrew’s College be widely known and appreciated for the fibre and sinew of moral and intellectual strength of the academic community, which it is privileged to house and nourish, and for its efforts to dispel darkness and brighten the lives of our sisters and brothers around us.
