EXCITEMENT was at fever pitch at St Ronan’s Primary School in Lisnaskea this week as staff and pupils unveiled a brand new school logo.
As principal Brian McGrath explained, back in February all the children were invited to submit their ideas to update the school’s crest.
“We received 150 ideas which was a great response. A number of these had music, work, religion, play and sport as to the main aspects of what our school life is all about. These ideas were put together to the new logo we have today,” he said.
So what does the logo represent?
“The open book represents our work in school each day – our learning. The musical notes show the tradition of music in the school and the revival of singing and ceili band which is underway. The hurley reflects the strong tradition of GAA while the dove represents the Holy Spirit – our helper and guide. In the centre of the logo there is a simple white cross which represents Jesus being central to our Catholic school,” Mr McGrath added.
The green and red colours link St Ronan’s to the colours of the local GAA club, Lisnaskea Emmetts.
The name of the school has a background which links to the current colour of the school jumper.
The logo will be seen immediately in the school grounds on new signage and will become a feature on school letterheads, newsletters, on policies and on the new school website and app which will be launching in the very near future.
“We hope you like it!” the principal quipped.
