A Scallop shell displayed with its convex showing, refers to St. James an Apostle of Jesus Christ. His lofty mission and special relationship with Christ, invites every member of the school community to remain faithful to Christ. There are three shells and the number “three” evokes the protagonists of the education offered at Hillrange: Parents, Teachers and Students, in the order proposed by St. Josemaria, under whose inspiration the school was founded.
The two chevrons represent the hills of Enugu. Their sharp peaks stand for the heights of excellence in character to which the students are invited.
The book closed with a seal represents wisdom and academic prowess, which requires a key to open it. This key is study, hard work, without which worthwhile knowledge is scarcely attained. The bright yellow colour that forms the background of the crest represents hope, happiness, optimism, and joy.
Our motto, Ad Summum, Latin for “To the heights” is an imperative for the students to strive for the very best in every endeavour. The “heights” here means the most sublime, the very excellent that is attainable, and its scope embraces all of life: academics,character, work, social relationship, etc.
The daily life of a Hillrange student is a gentle and yet vigorous walk through life. The sheer variety of experiences at his disposal is indeed stunning. Besides classroom and practical academic activities, school programmes include activities that strengthen the boys in character, skills and physical development. Our advisory system helps to personalize the students’ formation and the close collaboration with parents is second to none. We aim at grooming boys into happy persons.
