First Languages Australia would like to congratulate all the people who have worked tirelessly over the past ten years toward the opening of the Noongar Boodjar Language Cultural Aboriginal Corporation.

In the words of the Language Centre's Chairperson, George Hayden:
The opening of the Noongar Boodjar Language Centre is a tremendous step forward for the preservation and use of Noongar language. The centre has been established to ensure that all Noongar people have a place where the language is preserved and studied, where Noongar books are made, Noongar language classes held, stories recorded and resources made available for families.

Here are some photos of the opening celebrations.
