The school emblem depicts a beehive with bees and the motto "Sicut apis operosa" (as busy as bees).
The hive symbolises the school community in which students like single cells are cemented together to form one harmonious unit.
A hive speaks of perfection in symmetry. Students are called upon, under the guidance of their teachers to strive for excellence academically and in all spheres. Bees in a colony transform nectar from various flowers into honey. So each Annite should discover and develop her potential to the fullest, utilizing to the maximum all the opportunities offered in this school with the goal of becoming equipped to fulfil effectively in life the mission chosen for her by God.
Bees work in co-ordination. So each student should learn to appreciate the uniqueness of others and to co-operate in perfect team spirit to build a community of love, now in the school, and later in society. Like honey the students are called upon to be gentle instruments of healing and joy through their generous service.
In this way it is the aim of the school to form the students into responsible adults who in their journey through life, nourished by the nectar of God's presence within them, will work with others
to build "a civilization of love" - a foretaste of our Eternal home where we shall drink together the Divine Amruth.
