All Saints Grammar - "The Independent School that prepares your child for the Future"
All Saints Grammar is a co-educational Orthodox Christian School from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, run under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia. This young and vibrant school founded in 1990 by the Parish and Community of Belmore and District to provide academic excellence within a foundation of Orthodox Christian ethics.
The School Crest and Motto are symbols of the School’s ideals and provide an insight into our ethos, aims and goals. The School’s Motto-‘Let us Stand Well’ is a liturgical phrase that is heard at the beginning of the most sacred part of the Divine Liturgy, the Holy Eucharist. On the School Crest, it symbolises an invitation to all to be vigilant in the preservation, development and passing on to future generations the ideals symbolised by the other motifs on the Crest.
The symbol of the Open Book represents the values of education, learning and scholarship. The Ionian Column symbolises our Hellenic Tradition, language and culture. The Southern Cross is a symbol of the Australian Nation and our commitment to the Australian Community. The letters A and Ω, the first and last letters of the Greek Alphabet make reference to the Greek Language. The School recognises that a fuller appreciation of the Greek culture and civilisation requires command of the Greek language and provides instruction in the language to all students. The Cross of Salvation binds these four symbols, as all we do and believe in, are for our salvation and for the Glory of God.
