The coat of arms of St. Peter Claver High School are taken from our “umbrella” institution, Our Lady Queen of Peace Educational Centre. It is an illustration of its motto. Beginning in the upper right quadrant and moving clockwise: the book represents learning; the heart represents loving; and the hand-washing represents service. The rays of sun are part of the Seal of the Society of Jesus. The colours are those of the national flag, recognizing the school’s location in Tanzania’s capital city.
