Stu­dents’ Noon­gar space

Wanneroo Times - - NEWS -

MIN­DARIE Pri­mary School has cre­ated an open learn­ing area that en­cour­ages cul­tural re­flec­tion and in­clu­sion.

The school held an open­ing cer­e­mony for the ‘Kala Bood­jar, colours coun­try’ space last term.

As­so­ciate prin­ci­pal An­drew Gould said Sandy Black­ford led the project to cre­ate a space fea­tur­ing na­tive plants and bush tucker shrubs.

Mr Gould said stu­dents in­ves­ti­gated the Noon­gar cal­en­dar in a com­pe­ti­tion to de­sign art­work that fea­tures on poles cre­ated by Abo­rig­i­nal artist Jade Dol­man for a walk­way.
