The Latin motto of Christ College, Brecon comes from the Fifth Book of Virgil’s epic poem, the Aeneid:
This translates into the powerful maxim that encapsulates a great guiding principle:
If ever there was a classical representation of “Malaysia Boleh”, then this is it – we can do it! King Henry VIII College will happily adopt this motto, too.
The context of Virgil’s line gives us even more inspiration; the three words before “Possunt Quia” are “Hos successus alit”, meaning “Success nourishes them”.
A successful education means transferable skills and qualifications, of course; it is also about becoming a young person equipped to face the challenges presented by today’s world. Students at our new school in Malaysia will be given every opportunity to explore their talents, to be part of a supportive community, and to be nourished by their success.
The school will value individuality, initiative, and leadership, as well as emphasising the merits of teamwork. Students will be at the heart of a community of supportive parents, loyal staff, and dedicated, approachable teachers; a happy, positive community in which our students will develop resilience, tolerance, and emotional balance; a community that promotes curiosity, perseverance, and shared success.
