As an important facility for the Molonglo Valley community, we asked the community to tell us their preferred option for the name and the school uniform. Feedback was received using the ACT Government’s Your Say online voting function, resident drop-in sessions, emails and social media and this helped us finalise the different aspects of the school’s visual brand.
This concept captures the likeness of the Australian Reed-Warbler, a commonly spotted bird around Canberra’s wetlands including the nearby Molonglo River during its summer migration. They are known for their persistent singing and chattering.
The logo shows the simplicity and beauty of the natural landscape surrounding the school, and the soft colours keep it friendly and elegant.
The uniform was developed with consideration regarding gender neutrality, comfort, ease of manufacture, ease of matching colour and distinctiveness from nearby schools.
We have worked with ethical uniform suppliers to select material and styles. The final uniform design will include a full suite of uniform items, some of which may not be pictured here.
The navy polo shirt will proudly feature our school’s Reed-Warbler logo and be the centrepiece of the school uniform, which can be coordinated with black bottoms in the form of skorts, shorts, pants, and skirts.
Summer and winter uniform options will be available including dresses, jackets, jumpers, hoodies, and long-sleeved shirts. These will also be accompanied by a selection of hats, head dresses and wraps.
Uniforms can be ordered from The School Locker any time from January 2021. Orders can be delivered to your home or to Evelyn Scott School.
