Our school logo was designed in 2010 after new school values were established in the years prior. This was a collaborative effort involving a student voice logo committee, staff and community as well as a design and print company. Essentially the student committee collected the ideas of all students at school wishing to contribute ideas along with staff ideas and community opinion and collated this information. It was most evident that the environment was to be a feature and after several student drafting sessions our logo came to life. The student committee also visited the design company and worked with a senior graphic designer where they were involved in the last tweaks made and decided on colours for the finished logo. Our final logo disk was produced in November 2010 after a yearlong process.
