School Emblem

The School adopted an Emblem on 7th August 2000. Shri. B. R. Prabhakara, Chief Executive, GEF (M), unveiled the logo. The Emblem has been depicted below along with its significance. The main concept of the school is to impart education and training at the postgraduate level. The emblem has been designed keeping in view this concept. The emblem has the three basic geometric forms that convey a special meaning individually, and also when combined to form a whole. The colours also have been chosen to convey this concept.


The school emblem has a crimson rectangle at the base to convey a strong foundation, which is the basis of all learning and education. The beginning of any venture has to begin on an auspicious note, and the crimson color according to the HINDU mythology conveys this. Also, this colour is similar to that of the rising sun and its usage at the base of the Emblem would have its effect on the rise of the School and of its students.

The triangle that is placed above the base (i.e. the foundation) depicts a sense of dynamism and growth that is associated with the School. The moulding of the School and its students on the basis of a strong foundation is also being conveyed by the white triangle at the centre.

The circle has always been understood to be the most complete of all forms in geometry, and it is with this in mind that the circle has been chosen to encompass the whole form. This circle conveys the complete form of education that is imparted at the School. The green colour chosen for this has been adapted from nature. The colour is associated with prosperity, and it is this concept that we at the School hope to achieve.
