Our Motto

Sapere Aude

Our school motto, Sapere Aude, means ‘Dare to learn’.
We encourage our students to be brave and to consider new possibilities and ways to approach problems. All progress is made by those who have the confidence to think and act differently, and that journey starts with Sapere Aude!

On June 22, 2021, Oeiras International School launched a new visual identity, a new website and a new domain. OIS celebrates it’s 10th anniversary and for this occasion the brand was updated.

Shape your own trail.

The trail

In March 2021 the stakeholders chose the trail as their new logo. The trail is inspired on the trails in the “quinta”. The trail signifies that students have the freedom to choose their own trail in life.

The logo contains our new brand name OIS, rather than Oeiras International School. This shorter version is the way we refer to the school in everyday life.

The colours, for uniforms and other applications, were kept the same as the original visual identity. The orange in the new logo is based on the Nesperas (also known as loquats) fruit, a fruit that grows on the “quinta”.
