HOUSE PRIDE – NEW LOGO DESIGN
The School’s innovative House structure is one we’re extremely proud of. It gives students a home away from home, an extensive support system and a sense of pride and loyalty. After many years of loyal service, we think it might be time for a refresh of the logos representing each space.
The House colours and mascots we all follow will stay the same but we’re looking to engage our students in a collaborative redesign of the logos, with the updated design to be unveiled in Term 3.
Students from all Years can contribute to the process, penning their own design ideas over the next few weeks and submitting them to the House Deans either in person or via email by June 1 at the very latest.
The Deans will then collate all the designs and pass them on to the School’s experienced graphic designer who will take the ideas and combine them into three potential designs, which will then be put to a vote.
We aim to open the poll on the School’s Facebook page on 15 June (TBC), which will close end of day Friday, 29 June, with the winner announced at the start of Term 3. You will need to be a follower of the School’s page (facebook.com/StStephensSchoolWA) to be able to vote.
An unveiling event for Term 3 will be announced closer to the time, allowing students to take ownership of their new House logos into the future.
For any questions regarding the Logo Collaboration please contact your Dean.
