Drysdale Primary School has a strong sense of community both as a school and as part of the wider town. The school’s uniform brings a clear sense of identity and connection to both the school and the community of Drysdale.
Children who are strongly connected to their school and engaged with the school community have a greater sense of belonging and the enhanced sense of security that comes from this. Consequentially they have higher levels of self-esteem and are better learners as a result. A school uniform closely linked to the Drysdale community’s identity through the choice of gold and brown as the uniform colours increase this connectedness internally between students and externally to the town. A consistent uniform presents a positive public image especially when children are participating in activities outside the school.
