Our motto is Carpe Diem, a part of a Latin poem, which urges people to Seize the Day or Enjoy Every Minute, a feeling that each Haiger should have during and after school. As a play on the words of the school motto, "The Carpe" is a symbol of the school. If you see a large blue fish wandering the halls, give it a hug...it is our mascot. Blue and White are the traditional school colours. Many thousands of people throughout Ontario and beyond have a special regard for our colours and our school song.
