Stella Maris Catholic School Commission

Georgette-&-Cross (HRes)Pictured is Georgette and the finished art, she carefully crafted

When Stella Maris Catholic School on Maroochydore built their new hall they wanted to  add a sculpture to a wall measuring 2.5m high and 1m5cm wide and angled so that it will be visible from all main parts of the hall. It is above a ledge which is approx1.25m high and it cream in colour, they sought out Brisbane Sculptor Georgette Schwantes and commissioned her to create a Celtic Cross as a  relief for the wall for the blessing and opening of their new hall
Our school motto is from the bible Micah 6:8 “Act, justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with God”. Being named ‘Stella Maris’ after Mary, Star of the Sea, our main symbols are a star and waves with the star in the heading. Our school colours are dark  blue, light blue and white to mirror the colour of the sea.We are a presentation school, so Nano Nagle’s lantern is also a very important symbol.
