STUDENTS at Gowrie Street Primary School will be starting the new school year with a new look, after the school announced it was set to introduce new uniforms carrying the school’s new logo.
The new uniforms, which include a summer dress, winter skirt, jackets and shirts with a stylish black strip running down the left hand side, are all a part of the school’s plans to create a unique uniform for their students.
The new logo, which depicts children, a tree that symbolises the school’s closeness to the river and the four ‘caring values’ of the school, was created to better reflect the current values and where the school is today.
Gowrie Street Primary School Principal, Travis Eddy said, “We had been talking about the change for a couple of years. The old logo had been around for more than 20 years and we decided it didn’t reflect our school as it is today very well, so we decided it was time for a change.
“We chose the black strip on the shirts to break up the red and help our students to be better identified.
“Our school community have been very supportive of the changes. It’s been a long journey and we are very proud of our results.”
