SPECIAL DESIGN INDIGENOUS POLO SHIRTS

Karen Ahang and the Aboriginal students at Largs Bay School designed the polo tops last year. They were approved by Kaurna Elder, Michael O'Brien.

What began as a top to be available for school excursions and special events, has proved popular and the Governing Council has approved them to become part of the  school uniform.

 The shirts will only be available as PRE-ORDER items.

 The description of the tops is as follows.
