They have been working on designs for the Falcons guernsey for the July 12 fixture at Arena Joondalup.

And Year 5 student Tayln’s work won the best design at his school, earning a football kit for Quinns Rocks primary.

West Perth district manager Andrew Ridley said 120 children from Butler, Carramar, Craigie Heights, Creaney, Currambine, East Wanneroo, Heathridge, Madeley and Quinns Rocks primary schools took part in the design exercise.

‘Students have put an amazing amount of work into their designs, many researching flag designs, different countries and cultures,’ Mr Ridley said.

‘This is a great way to engage local school students into a great community event.

‘International round is about engaging new and current Australians with the indigenous game ” Australian Rules.’

The club will pick an overall winning design for a jumper the Falcons will wear on July 12.

‘With the jumper sponsored by the WA Football Commission, the Falcons district and West Perth Football Club were keen to see an international-round jumper designed to recognise and celebrate the huge multicultural population who live and work in Perth’s northern corridor,’ Mr Ridley said.

West Perth will distribute thousands of free family tickets to local school students over the next three weeks.

Tayln’s school will get:

– Free tickets for the entire school, including parents, to the international round match on July 12 at Arena Joondalup.

– 100 places for students from Quinns Rocks Primary School at a footy clinic on the oval at half-time.

– 25 Falcons footballs.

– Free entry for the Year 5 class into the July school holiday footy clinic (worth $65 per student).
