IT has been 125 years since Ngala stepped in to help provide early parenting and childhood services to the WA community and, to celebrate, it recognised some of its longest-serving employees.
Staff members were recognised in blocks of five years, with the three longest-term employees – Evelyn Lyra, Karol Knowles and Irene Nagington – each receiving awards for 25 years of service.
Ngala chief executive Ashley Reid said there was no better way to celebrate Ngala’s 125th birthday than to recognise the people who so valuably contributed to Ngala’s reputation as a leading resource for families with babies and young children in Western Australia.
“What better way to recognise our long-serving, dedicated staff than to acknowledge their contribution on the anniversary of Ngala’s 125th year of service,” he said.
“Ngala’s 125 years of service to the West Australian community would not be possible without dedicated and passionate people.”
