College Logo

The School Logo

 

Green is the official color of Pines City Colleges. This represents life, nature and well-being of man. This is evident in the School of Midwifery’s round logo with scalloped edges. This symbolizes the well-rounded personalities of the students and graduates who are trained in the multi-faceted aspects relating to the duties and responsibilities of a midwife.

A picture of a mother and child is in the center of the logo. The unending love and care of a mother for her child is the focus in Midwifery practice.

The lamp is a symbol of light and guidance to the midwives as they render care to the mother and child.

The 2-year midwifery course in Pines City Colleges, formerly Pines City Doctor’s Hospital School of Nursing, was given government recognition on May 22, 1979.

Emerald green and white are the official colors to give identity to the department.

The logo was approved by Dr. Abigail T. Bersamin, Vice President for Academic Affairs and was adopted on June 28, 2012.
