In the middle of the silver white background is a fountain of learning and knowledge where the Brideteens past, present and future drink long and deep. The two little birds representing the young, our Nations "treasured heritage".

On the right of the fountain a dark green leaf of the oak together with acorns bring in the strength and resilience of St. Bridget's together with the prized value of steadfastness.

The shamrock leaf of Irish fame on the left speaks of the founders of the school. The Irish nuns who pioneered the setting up the educational institution St. Bridget's Convent.

The fact that children need guidance and protection emerges from the symbol of the Shepherds' Crook. It is the Good Shepherd who looks after his fold and guides them safely across the path.

In the centre the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary proclaim the spirituality on which the school is founded.
