That is a Latin phrase which means “To be, rather than to seem [to be]”. Quite a number of schools and organisations are using this phrase as their motto, and I can see why. It is a wonderful motto. Be true, be who you are, be proud of what you are made of and are capable of doing, rather than pretending to be. In this fast-paced world that requires us to perform different roles, staying true and being true is hard to do. So I use this powerful Latin phrase to remind myself that everyday.
