Many Australian students place emphasis on belonging to a ‘House’ and proudly display their House Colours. Coming from the days of the great English boarding schools where students were accommodated in different boarding houses, School Houses are traditionally named after a prominent school identity, or historical figure.
Within schools, each House group has distinctive colours to identify house teams at sports and swimming carnivals or other school events. A school House may also feature other symbols, such as a coat of arms or crest. While the rivalry between House Colours has been played out within schools, it has also been reflected in popular culture, particularly through the Harry Potter series of novels and films.
The importance of representing achievement and excellence are instilled in the tradition of House Colours with students proudly supporting their allocated House throughout their school life.
At Davell, we also draw on the principles of excellence, having worked with several schools to provide lockers that reflect House Colours. Our wide colour range means that lockers can be manufactured to represent any school’s House Colours, including two-toned locker colour combinations and those incorporating House symbols on locker doors.
The Sports School Locker and Multistore School Locker accommodate backpacks, sports bags, laptops, textbooks, uniforms and personal items in the safety of a secure steel locker. For mobile phone storage in schools we have Charging Lockers that supply power to USB or mains power to charge phones, tablets and laptops while they are securely stored.
All Davell lockers are powder coated using Dulux’s large range of colours including standard, pearl, texture and ripple and hammertone and textured finishes. You can find out more about our range of school lockers here.
We have successfully worked with School Executives and Parents and Friends Associations to produced House Colour lockers for schools including SCEGGS at Darlinghurst, Abbotsleigh in Wahroonga, OLMC Parramatta, Hunter Valley Grammar School, Ravenswood School for Girls, Brigidine College and Aquinas College.
