Our school sign is like a drop of water, representing our hunger for education. The branches symbolize our three ideas and serve as guiding principles in achieving the three intended results for Yishunites. The branches’ gradual development represents the numerous phases of learning that our students must go through before reaching their final objective. The circle signifies the results of one’s labour, which may get obtained via hard work, determination, and self-discipline.
