Freyberg High School Blazer Pocket

More Info →Freyberg High School Blazer Pocket

This blazer pocket features the Freyberg High School Crest embroidered on a navy blue background. The castle indicates a solid foundation, with the Union Jack signifying British influence in the education system. The lion rampant embodies bravery and courage. The four stars on a diagonal black band represent the bandolier of a soldier. However, the Eagle rousant is missing from the top of the crest. Foundation staff devised the school motto, "Virtute et Honore," early in 1955 when Latin was taught at the school. Those foundation staff provided a brief translation of, "with Courage and with Honour," to stand for the wider concept of 'virtus' which epitomises the best qualities of man. The pocket belonged to Ms Jillian (Jill) Farrington, who attended Freyberg High School from 1968 to 1971.
