At some time, a banner is produced bearing the words “St Mary’s College Jeppestown” and the inscription “United in love and always faithful”. The letters ER are a reference to King Edward VII who reigned from 1902 to 1910. But the banner disappears, until it is discovered in a school desk in 1982. It is framed and once again put on display.
