Crest & Motto
The school motto is conanti corona, “A crown to the one who strives”. The school crest is an adaptation of the Christian Brothers’ crest, highlighting the Celtic Cross and the Irish heritage of the Christian Brothers. The crest reaffirms the school’s strong connection to both the founding order and the school’s locality. From its foundation and in touch with the vision of Edmund Rice, Christian Brothers' High School Lewisham has always been a place for the ordinary man to strive to greatness. Conanti corona captures the spirit of what it is possible for the ordinary man to be — our students hold it close to their heart.
