Students Design Indigenous School Ties

Yr 12 students at Wesley College in Perth have designed an Indigenous school tie (pictured) as part of the Class of 2021 ‘Gift to College’.

The new initiative, which was led by Year 12 students Arthur Jones and Sam White, reflects the pathway which each student takes through Wesley. Key aspects of the design include a central yellow strip which represents the journey walked during school life, linking the Junior School (symbolised by a small kangaroo), Middle School (symbolised by a larger emu) and Senior School (represented by a goanna nest) in the design.

The tie will become part of the stock at the school uniform shop, with all profits from sales to be set aside in a Reconciliation Fund.
