NATIONAL Reconciliation Week was wrapped up with Wadjak Northside Community Centre’s Reconciliation walk and celebration.

Elders, students and residents gathered for the event at Lake Gwelup , a place of significance for the Noongar people.

Wadjak centre founder Len Yarran said the area was once home to the Mooro people including Aboriginal warriors Yagan and Midgegooroo.

Elder Sealin Garlett said as an Indigenous man he felt honoured to host the event and give the welcome to country.

“When your children and our children share on this land, we listen to one another not only with our ears but with our hearts,” he said.

Balga Senior High school’s band OLE entertained the crowd.
