Description

Launceston Church Grammar School has two campuses in the northern Tasmanian city of Launceston. The school crest, or coat of arms, features a shield with the image of a castle with crenelated parapets and square towers. Above the castle is an open book and two bees. Below the shield is a Latin tag which reads ‘Unless the Lord is with us, our labour is in vain’. Featured is an ornate sculptured crest and a more recent simplified version. These photographs were taken on the Mowbray campus.
