The Motto of an Institution captures the essence of the Mission of an institution, and presents the recipients of its Mission with an inspirational vision-phrase to focus their creative energies on. The Crest presents the same in symbols, which elaborates the ethos, status and purposes of the Institution.
‘Ever Onward’, the Motto of Saint Claret Pre-University College Bangalore (SCPC) sums up the direction of the creative energies of the College. The College is ever committed to continuous and refreshing efforts to constantly renew itself and strive for the creation of a civilization of love, as stated in its Mission Statement. ‘Ever Onward’ inspires the Management and the teaching faculty and the administrative and ministerial staff to constantly improve their personal and professional skills to realize the onward march. The clarion call of ‘Ever Onward’ constantly encourages the Claretines-the students of SCPC- to so nourish themselves at the portals of the college that their lives would always evolve into greater and finer levels of self-realization and transcendence.
The Crest symbolically captures the educational mission and vision of SCPC: the white Dove stands for the noble in a person – the qualities of the heart that shapes one’s character and transforms one into a blessing unto the society. The Dove also stands for the Holy Spirit, who is the source of all wisdom and signature of God in human hearts. Its forward and upward movement points to the evolution of the person into greater and finer levels of self-realization and transcendence at the service of the society, which finally leads to the creation of a civilization of love. The blue sky at the background symbolizes the limitless possibilities that invite a Claretine to evolve into. The letters CMF stand for the Claretians, the Management of SCPC who, inspired by life and impelled by love, play the catalyst in the evolution of each Claretine.
