"The centre motif represents the connection between communities and people in the diocese. The small outside concentric circles represent each of the school communities. Travelling lines come in to make up the outside circle - the Diocese.

The second circle represents the school community, the third circle represents family and the inner circle represents the children who are at the centre. The wavy lines in between each circle represent the transfer and sharing of knowledge between all groups. There is a strength in the connection of people through learning and sharing together.

The lines and space between the fingers of the hands represent the hills and valleys. The yellow represents the plains and the red represents the rivers.

The twelve white dots represent the twelve moons of the year.

This painting represents the connections between people and communities in the diocese."
