Since its foundation in 1992 Legae Academy has had its founding motto, which is “Thuto go aga Botho” which loosely translated into English means “Education Builds Humanity”.
25 years later we believe it’s time to attune that core foundational message with what the school has become and the future it envisages. In that regard we have held on to the original motif of a bird feeding chicks in a nest.
This conveys that at Legae each and every student is “fed” an education equally. There is no discrimination .All students shall be treated equally.
In keeping with our roots we have gone back to the original motto used by the founder of the School, Violet Hamilton, and that is “Every Child is Yours”.
Now, we have gone a step further, by surrounding the bird feeding its chicks and the motto “Every Child is Yours” with a shield invoking the idea that at Legae Academy we will be a haven, and protect our students and treat them as our responsibility.
Inside the shield, above the bird feeding its chicks and the motto, we have placed a blank open book suggesting that at Legae Academy we seek to provide our students a foundation to build their own legacy on and write their own history.
Below the shield is a laurel wreath which symbolizes the victory of accomplishment which we want our students to experience during their time at Legae Academy along with the success we wish for them in the future. It also signifies the nobility of character that we wish them to strive for.
Adjoined to the shield are wings which signify our wish that all our students rise above all of life’s challenges as well by excelling in their studies and soar into their future endeavours with confidence acquired from their time at Legae Academy.
This new logo represents the fact that at Legae Academy we are proud of our traditional roots but at the same time we are also aware of the schools growing successes and the bright future it has based on hard work and innovative ideas.
