Nyoongar culture celebrated

The inaugural Dandjoo Koorliny gathering marked Reconciliation Week, which ran from May 27 to June 3.

Ashfield Primary School choir entertained the crowd with three songs sung in English and Nyoongar language, and six students donned traditional indigenous body paint and danced.

Allan Kickett read stories to the children and Toogarr Morrison hosted art activities.

Town of Bassendean Mayor John Gangell said there were plans to make the event bigger each year.
