MacKillop students have contributed to the design of the Canberra Raiders’ 2022 Indigenous Jersey, which will be worn against the Parramatta Eels in the NRL Indigenous Round this weekend.
The jersey has been designed by Kayannie Denigan, a Luritja woman, through collaboration with the NRL’s School to Work Program and the University of Canberra.
The design splits the jersey up into five panels, each of which has been inspired by creative writing from students in the School to Work program. The jersey also depicts the totems of the six Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players who are in the current Raiders squad.
Two of the panels were based on stories written by former MacKillop students, Stewart Barton and Riley Margosis. At the time, Riley was still a student here in Year 12 and Stewart had just graduated from the College.
Another former MacKillop student and current Canberra Raider, Sebastian Kris, has his totem, the crocodile, on the jersey.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”
With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
