New Crest, Mission, Vision and Values

On the 800th Jubilee of the Dominican Order of Preachers, the new Crest, Mission and Vision statements and Values were launched.

San Clemente Crest 4 Pillars

The school colours of black and white represent truth over heresy. The white reflects the joy and the purity of Christ, and the black reminds servants of the Lord of their humility and obligation for penance.

The centrepiece of the crest stands on the black and white cross of Aza, part of the family crest of St Dominic’s mother.

In the centre of the crest is a white dove and this is symbolic of the peace and security of the Holy Spirit.  The dove carries four ribbons representing the Dominican pillars of Prayer, Study, Community and Service.

Four Pillars


The four pillars of Dominican spirituality: 

Prayer is at the heart of the spiritual Dominican life. 

Study is not just learning for its own sake or for one’s own glory, it is about learning how to contribute positively to the world. 

Community relates to members of the human race coming together to live together in unity and in a way that brings witness to the word.

Service is helping others in need. 

Mission Vision Values Banner

Our values reflect the four Dominican pillars of Prayer, Study, Community and Service, as well as the five areas of Positive Education - Connect, Keep learning, Take notice, Be active and Give.
