About the event

Kaya! Hello!

Whadjuk Nyungar woman and qualified language teacher Sharon Gregory will be introducing us to the Nyungar language. We will be learning the names of animals and places, as well as other things we come across in the bush and natural environment.

This introduction class will be held outdoors in the Rehabilitating Roe 8 bushland and offer a way of (re)connecting with our natural environment through local language.

We will bring some mats to sit on and provide a light morning tea. You are welcome to bring a camping chair. Registrations essential for catering purposes and to receive potential updates about the event.

Places for this free event are limited.

Registered attendees will be sent an email with the meeting location closer to the date.

Everyone welcome.
