You are a school, college, or university. Generating a sense of togetherness is important as a supporting factor in the learning experience. So how do you go about reinforcing your identity and encouraging that sense of community and that feeling of pride amongst staff, pupils, and parents?
Branded goods are a really great start. These days most places of education have some kind of accessory items featuring their logo. These things may get handed out – and in some cases they may even be up for sale and become highly desirable or even collectible.
Uniform is also key – things like branded hoodies or printed school jackets for pupils. When you think about it, a school is a team with all the staff, teachers and pupils working towards the same goal – a great education. Like all other teams a level of consistency is highly desirable. A uniform (like a kit, in sports) is a great way of focusing mentality when heading towards a goal. Psychologically, wearing uniform clothing is a great reminder that you belong - and that you have a common goal as well as your own individual aims. Uniform clothing items for colleges and schools are also good for raising awareness of your institution outside of it, too, when pupils are out and about.
In the case of day-to-day kits containing pencils and pens, or backpacks with school logo featured prominently on the back, printed items for schools and colleges are also incredibly useful in a practical sense. Branded with a logo, accessories and uniform all encourage efficiency and organization – desirable qualities.
Any type of customized item featuring the school, college or university logo is great for giveaways in fundraising raffles and auctions. These items are not necessarily specifically designed for education. Things like mugs, coasters, glasses, keychains, sunglasses, hats, air fresheners and more – just about anything you can think of could be branded up and put out there to promote your school, college or university.
