The Burning Bush
The burning bush sits at the head of the College crest in the centre of the words 'The Scots College'. The image is a reference to the encounter between Moses and God, recorded in the Old Testament book of Exodus, "He looked, and behold, the bush was burning, yet it was not consumed."
The bush is sustained, not by its own strength, but by the presence of God in its midst. Even under fire of persecution, it is forever kept from being consumed into ashes.
The use of the burning bush image as a symbol in our 125th Anniversary serves to connect us. In his 2016 Speech Day address, Dr Ian PM Lambert, Principal of The Scots College, said, "a long tradition of searchers and believers across generations and nations have embraced and found comfort in the image, the still small voice of God in the midst of confusion and complexity. It reminds us that God is with us, His people, and ultimately sustains us through times of trial and challenge, and also joy. With that faith and a bold vision full of hope and opportunity and a truly remarkable staff and community, the boys of The Scots College will march boldly into the future with brave hearts and bold minds."
The 125 Years branding treatment combines the Scots blazer cuff braid with the burning bush from the College crest. This honours the proud history and heritage of the College whilst embracing the leadership, character and spirit that defines the brave hearts and bold minds of every Scots boy.
