Motto

“Growing in Christ”

Our school motto was chosen as a sign to all, that our school community has the highest of ideals recognising that Jesus Christ is the focus of all that we do.   

Symbols

The symbols of the agricultural (cow and grapevine) and mining sectors (power lines) acknowledge the major sources of employment and land use in the Denman area. These two industries have contributed to the success of Denman’s economy, historically and currently.

The grapevine not only symbolises the thriving wine industry in the Upper Hunter, but also reminds us that Jesus likened us to the branches and himself as the vine. Our life comes from and is sustained by Him.
