Con­tri­bu­tions marked

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

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.”

Ngala staff Martin Black, Irene Nag­ing­ton, Eve­lyn Lyra, Karol Knowles and chief ex­ec­u­tive Ash­ley Reid cut­ting a cake.
