School Crest

Our updated school crest was designed by 6th Class pupil Ruby Donohue several years ago. Each element was carefully chosen and designed as part of a school competition.
 

  • 1952 is the year the school was founded​

  • Ashford developed along the banks of The River Vartry. The heron has been a favourite character usually perched on the Ashford Weir. ​

  • The ball is symbolic of the importance of all sports​ in our school and our links with local sports clubs in the community.

  • The book represents learning. The high cross is symbolic of our Irish culture and our religion and also, our school name – Scoil na Coróine Mhuire (School of the Most Holy Rosary)​.

  • The beautiful ash branch represents the ash trees that are common in Ashford. The globe acknowledges the many diverse backgrounds and nationalities in our school.

  • We have placed the ash branch at the centre of the Globe to show that while Ashford is most important to us we are part of the global environmental picture.
