The Queensland Rugby Union’s seventh annual Indigenous Round was launched Monday with the unveiling of the Queensland Reds'Indigenous jersey – to be worn this Friday against the Sunwolves at Suncorp Stadium – as the centrepiece of the QRU’s NAIDOC Week celebrations.
Reds players Moses Sorovi and George Smith unveiled the unique Indigenous Round jersey, designed by Samantha Booth, whose three children Shelley (Year 9), Dinequa (Year 8) and Natalie (Year 7) are Reds Future Indigenous Leaders Program participants in Woorabinda, Central Queensland.
The program seeks to identify young Indigenous leaders from remote communities and mentor them from school years 6-10, ensuring they display positive behaviour and attend school.
Samantha is a proud Butchulla woman. The Butchulla people are the Traditional Owners of K’gari (Fraser Island). She is currently a Special Education (& Well Being) Teacher Aide at Woorabinda State School.
“The Reds Future Indigenous Leaders Program is outstanding, and I can see how my three children are benefitting from being part of it – which will certainly help them in the future.
