On Saturday 28 May, the PSA fixtures will see the Christ Church First XVIII play a special Indigenous round game against Scotch College.
The team will come up against their rivals in one-off jumpers designed by old boy Aiden Albert.
Five members of Christ Church’s First XVIII are from the School’s Indigenous Student Program. Mr Chris Miles, Indigenous Program Co-ordinator, said the boys were very excited about the game.
“The boys are really proud to be part of the Indigenous round. The game will be a great opportunity for them to showcase their talent on the footy field,” he said.
The game will be played at the Scotch College playing fields with a Welcome to Country at 10.15am followed by bounce down at 10.30am.
“This has been a great round of footy in the past and I encourage all members of the Christ Church community to come along and get behind our team.”
The Indigenous round started last year, following in the footsteps of the AFL in recognising and celebrating Indigenous involvement in the PSA competition. It was the initiative of a group of Indigenous co-ordinators, supported by the Wirrpanda Foundation.
