Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on October 17, 1986.

Both schools use the same arms, but with a different motto. The primary school does not seem to use the crest.

The arms show the battlements and twin towers of Scotland’s Stirling Castle, echoed in the Border’s 19th-century frontier forts; a flaming torch as a symbol of education; green and blue as background colours to represent Stirling Primary and Commercial High, Stirling’s antecedents; green and gold to represent Stirling as the suburb for returning “Springbok” soldiers; an anchor as maritime reference to the Stirling Castle and East London as a river port; and oak and coral tree leaves to represent the trees of Scotland and South Africa.
