The School Badge & Motto

School badges of the Convents of the Infant Jesus are used on five continents, from France to Bolivia to Malaysia.

The badge is red in the centre, framed by a silver band trimmed in gold. The colour red traditionally represents love, God’s Spirit of Love embracing the world.  To the right is the Holy Book.  This is the Bible for Christians, the Quran for Muslims, the Bhagavadgita for Hindus, the Dharmapada for Buddhists – whatever the teachings that form the basis of their faith in God. It is underlined for us in Malaysia by the principle of the Rukunegara.

On the left, is the Distaff and Spindle; which represents labor.  As we pursue our ideal of work, we are proud to be associated with the thousands of girls from different cultures, ages, and times who have embodied this noble tradition. We each have our own role to play in creating a harmonious world.  In Malaysia, the Shield is crowned by a Golden Star and surrounded by Marguerites bearing a motto:

SIMPLE IN VIRTUE STEADFAST IN DUTY / TULUS DENGAN FADILAH AZAM DENGAN BAKTI.

Simple in Virtue” means being open and honest with others so that we can live in a spirit of family togetherness. 
Steadfast in Duty‘ implies an awareness of our duty to serve others. 

Marguerite garlands symbolise purity and simplicity towards God and neighbour

CBN
The shining star of my life
You will always glow within me
And through me you will shine forth
A new light others will follow

CBN
With us your memory will stay
You will always light the way
Show us our strengths and our hopes
CBN our star forever more.

So hear our song sung with spirits strong
We, the girls of CBN today
Will lift up our motto and strive to be
Simple in virtue, steadfast in duty
So hear our song sung with spirit strong
We, the girls of CBN today
The youth of tomorrow, we promise to be true
For CBN, we love you
