In 1986, the year that Curling Elementary School opened, students and parents were encouraged to help design a crest and to propose an appropriate motto for their new school. The Home and School Association in conjunction with the school staff sponsored a contest for this purpose.
The winning crest design was submitted by a Grade One student, Diane Pelley. Her design has an open book with golden pages laid on a blue background. This open book signifies knowledge. Below the book are two intertwined keys which stand for the two schools, Curling Memorial and Milley Primary, which joined to form Curling Elementary.
Our school motto, LEARN TO GROW, GROW TO LEARN, was submitted by a student in Grade Four, Nicole Habib.
