Christ Church Grammar School Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students recently took part in an art session with Yamatji artist Loretta Egan to design ties and shirts for the upcoming NAIDOC week.

The artworks featured traditional symbols depicting scenes like the Swan River, meeting places and the School.

Once completed, selected artworks will be used as designs for collared shirts and neckties to be sold at the Uniform Shop during NAIDOC Week.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program Co-ordinator Sam Wallace said he was impressed by the creative designs from the students.

“Loretta’s tutelage of the boys while they produce their designs has been fantastic, her experience has really inspired the boys and encouraged them to produce some fantastic pieces of art,” he said.

“I look forward to seeing the finalised neckties and shirts being sported across the school during NAIDOC Week.”
