The school crest is jade and gold in hue. It expresses our objective for every SCGS girl to acquire the characteristics of a Kim Gek (“Gold” and “Jade” in Hokkien), a young woman who is the pride of her family because of the virtues she exemplifies. The yin-yang sign on the coat of arms is a classic Chinese symbol for balance, demonstrating how seemingly opposing elements may complement one another. Sincerity, Courage, Generosity, and Service are the school’s mottos. The School Crest represents the entire and balanced education that we give to Groom Kim Geeks, exemplifying the virtues of honesty, courage, kindness, and service.
