The visual representation of our MASTER learning framework

We have used a number of symbols to capture the essence of MASTER at Emmaus including:

  • Local fauna and flora - western kangaroo, brown snake and wattle
  • Portrayal of hands to show 'community' - Youth and Elders working together
  • The main meeting place symbols facing 'inwards' to show connection of students with their learning
  • The inwards symbols separated by the brown snake also represent the infinity symbol, as learning is a life-long journey
  • All symbols positioned in the shape of a cross, and the cross in the background represent our faith at the heart of all that we do
  • Cobblestone around the cross represents the different stages of the journey we are on with our faith and learning.
