Finalists Designs

The winner of our inaugural Oorala T-Shirt design completion is Anthony Strong with his design 'Footsteps to Education'.

Congratulations to Anthony - these t-shirts will be available in the New Year

and congratulations to Pauline Coxon for being the runner up with her design 'Flannel Flowers'.


The Oorala Aboriginal Centre launched our inaugural Oorala T-Shirt design competion in 2020. Our students and staff overwhelmingly support a shirt that will create a sense of community and celebrate our culture, whilst promoting education here at UNE.

We narrowed it down to two final designs!
