Singapore Chinese Girls' School - Crest

Crest

The colours of the school crest are jade and gold.

This reflects her time-honoured tradition, because jade and gold in Hokkien (Kim Gek) and in Mandarin (JinYu) connotes a young Chinese girl brought up and educated in the best manner. In today’s educational, social and cultural context, such traditional values remain as steadfast and meaningful as ever.

The school motto is Sincerity, Courage, Generosity and Service.

The Yin and yang aspects of the traditional Chinese symbol of balance are in jade and gold respectively. This symbol, which represents the universe, light, darkness, life and death, lies at the heart of the many branches of classical Chinese sciences, philosophy and medicine.

Glad That I Live Am I (School song)
Lyrics by Lizette Woodworth Reese
(from 'A Little Song of Life')
Glad that I live am I,
That the sky is blue.
Glad for the country lanes,
And the fall of dew.
After the sun the rain,
After the rain the sun.
This is the way of life,
Till the work be done.
All that we need to do,
Be we low or high,
Is to see that we grow,
Nearer the sky.

Famous quotes containing the word crest:

    The history of any nation follows an undulatory course. In the trough of the wave we find more or less complete anarchy; but the crest is not more or less complete Utopia, but only, at best, a tolerably humane, partially free and fairly just society that invariably carries within itself the seeds of its own decadence.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    What shall he have that killed the deer?
    His leather skin and horns to wear.
    Then sing him home.
    Take thou no scorn to wear the horn,
    It was a crest ere thou wast born;
    Thy father’s father wore it,
    And thy father bore it.
    The horn, the horn, the lusty horn
    Is not a thing to laugh to scorn.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
