Introducing our new Indigenous Guernsey

In preparation for the Public Schools Association Football Indigenous round, we are delighted to announce our new Indigenous guernsey, designed by Year 12 students William Wolf and Raquell Bin Rashid.

Year 12 footballers Coen Livingstone, William Wolf and Raquell Bin Rashid wearing the Indigenous guernsey ahead of this weekend's PSA Football Indigenous round.

Discover the meaning of the guernsey from designers William and Raquell:

The bottom half of the guernsey shows a group of people gathering around a meeting spot. The boomerangs and tapping sticks featured on the guernsey represent Scotch College's students united as a community. They are gathered at a meeting place; in this case it is Scotch College.

The bottom half is a key part of our guernsey because it represents the connectedness and close bond that each boy at Scotch shares with the school. It also symbolises the importance of community.

The top half features multiple scattered blue dots, covering the blue space on the guernsey. The shade of blue we used symbolises the ocean and the sky. By adding blue, it stands out against the darker maroon on the design. We've also added an Indigenous flag on the interior of the guernsey's collar, to pay respect to past and present Indigenous PSA Football players.

On the back of the jumper, we've designed an emu track print running along the bottom. We decided to use this print because we wanted to add culture from the Kimberley region of Western Australia to reflect the large number of Kimberley based Indigenous students at the College.

The PSA Football Indigenous round is this week, on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 May 2021.

You can catch the First XVIII Football team play Wesley College in the Indigenous guernsey from 10.45am, Saturday 29 May at Memorial Oval, Scotch College Playing Fields.
