Noongar Language Classes

Thursday 30th May 2024
(Multiple Dates Between Thursday 30th May 2024 & Thursday 27th June 2024)


The Dylans and their Noongar Language lessons are back at the Vic Park Community Centre for Term 2!

Youngsters will learn Noongar language and culture through a range of fun games, songs, craft activities, storytelling, artefacts demonstrations and more!

Term 2 will focus on body parts, animals and colours, whilst building upon the knowledge from previous terms. 

We welcome both new and familiar faces, with the classes designed so that everyone will learn something new!

The lessons are inclusive of Indigenous and non-Indigenous folks and offer a friendly, vibrant, hands on learning space to suit all ages and learning styles.

Parents are welcome to join the kids for free.
