School Motto

Quaque Sunt Vera is Latin for, "Whatsoever Things are True" and is taken from Paul's Epistle to the Philippians, Chapter Four, beginning with Verse Eight:

whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
