Mascot

Our mascot is a flaming phoenix. The phoenix is a mythical bird that never really dies. Legend has it that when it grows old and weak, it flies to the top of the highest mountain. There it builds a nest-like pyre of aromatic cinnamon bark and some sharp-scented gum called myrrh. With the help of the sun, flames leap off the nest, and the phoenix becomes a big round blaze of fire. The phoenix is eventually consumed by the flames.

After some days, the flames go out and a pile of silvery-grey ash is left in the nest. The ash begins to tremble and slowly heaves itself upwards. From under the ashes, there rises a young phoenix. The phoenix comes to life from the ashes of its predecessor.

Moment by moment, it grows. When it is again old and weak, it flies to the top of the same mountain. There it builds a fragrant nest, and the sun once again burns it to ashes. A young phoenix arises from the ashes each time. The phoenix symbolizes renewal or hope that is reborn, hence our motto.

School Song

Born from the ashes of hope

Like the Christ crucified and risen ~ (clap clap clap)

We children of this generation

Smiling brighter than tragedy’s gloom ~ (clap clap clap)

Proclaim our God, the giver of all good things

Life is sacred! Hence our memory of Loyolan Sixty Angels ever fresh

From the ashes the Phoenix has risen

Consolation of angst memories of our nation~ (clap clap clap)

The Jesuit Memorial College

Torchbearer of compassionate commitment ~ (clap clap clap)

Open to growth, excellence in character and learning ~ (clap clap clap)

Much more than a school, JMC is family,

Forever to love and to serve

We bear within us hope reborn

Cum Eloquentia Perfecta proclamamus

Honour Code

I will not lie, cheat or steal

I will respect my own physical and spiritual integrity

That of each person in the college and that of the college itself.

So help me God.
