The crest which is the coat of arms of the school has the following features: Drums, Palm tree, Light and Sword.
Drums: The drum traditionally, signifies the cultural values of the people. The sound of the drum signifies an important event. The drums remind the students of their culture and make them aware that they should not forget their culture as an important aspect of their lives. Whenever they hear the sound of the drums they should be mindful of an important event.
Palm Tree: Palm tree is a very useful plant and serves a lot of purposes. The palm tree reminds students of the importance of schooling/education and that they are expected to be useful to their various societies after completing school. They should also be mindful of the evergreen nature of the palm tree; to be useful in season and out of season.
Light: The light naturally shows or brightens the path or route. The light reminds the students that they are light bearers; thus they should lead people in their areas of endeavours. The light emphasizes that the students should brighten any corner wherever they would be in future.
Sword: The sword is the symbol of authority of the Jamasi stool. It tells the students that they are nobles and should respect authority in society. Hence the accolade “ADEHYEε”
