College Crest

The origins of the Logo are the Christian representations encompassed in the local environment. The logo was developed after months of consultation.

The St Mary's College Logo symbolises the land on which Broome is located as well as the ocean that surrounds us.

  • The pearl shell displays the significance of the pearling industry for the people of Broome, e.g. their successes and their sorrows.
  • The Cross reminds us of Jesus’ death for our salvation.
  • Mary our Patron Saint is central to our mission and is highlighted.
  • We also see the Book of Knowledge at the base of the Cross – the book also takes on the shape of a bird, symbolising the Holy Spirit.
  • The life of the ocean and the land as part of God’s creation are symbolised by the goanna and fish.
  • The sun greatly affects our whole climate. It is a symbol of God’s glory, a symbol of the Risen Christ whose face shone as the sun at His Transfiguration.

Caritas Australia’s is the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development. It strives to* End Poverty, *Promote Justice and *Uphold Dignity.

We are grateful that the St Mary's College Community have always generously embraced the annual Lenten fundraising and awareness- raising appeal, Project Compassion, which brings together thousands of Australians in solidarity with the world's poor to help end poverty, promote justice and uphold dignity

We are so proud of our students who embrace this project with their listening hearts and who are inspired to "be more" for the sake of poor people in our world.

In the words of Pope Francis "Cultivate with love the seeds of goodness, beauty and truth that God sows in every new generation"
