The Coat of arms of the school bears a book which is
a symbol of knowledge and inscribed on its pages are
the words of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma
Gandhi, “ The end of all Knowledge must be the
Building up of Character.” Indeed, this is what
education is meant to be - not just an accumulation of
knowledge, but the ability to use this knowledge for
the development of one’s character. And this brings
Light into a world that is plagued by the darkness of
ignorance and prejudice, symbolized by the burning
candle. Every Philomenite is therefore inspired to
carry the light of knowledge gained in the school to a
world that seeks peace, harmony and warmth.
