Vision and Logo
The Samaritan College Logo embodies the theology, spirituality and community values expressed in the Samaritan Gospel stories. It highlights the importance of the Catholic faith that underpins all our endeavours, emphasising the notion of compassion, selflessness and the benefits of wisdom through our own experiences.
The logo’s composition shows a pair of hands cupped together in a chalice-like structure reminiscent of the Samaritan Woman’s water jar and is also shaped to appear as birds in flight. The birds present the notion of joy and hope in a caring and nurturing environment. They suggest youthfulness and a positive uplifting perspective. The main bird in the centre of the composition is comfortably nestled within this cradle like shape. The cross, also an emerging element, is surrounded by the living water of Jacob’s well, representing faith in action.

Providing a Christian education in the Catholic tradition, Samaritan College takes its name from the Samaritan Gospel stories and its ethos is centred on the values which are at the heart of the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) and the encounter of Jesus with the Samaritan Woman (John 4:1-42) at Jacob’s well.
The College’s motto - Faith, Wisdom, Compassion, reflects the values and qualities that are at the heart of the Samaritan gospel stories.
