Doing it for the kids with Friends of Ngala, and an Ambassador’s call

The Governor and Mrs Dawson attended Ngala’s key annual fundraising event – the Friends of Ngala Luncheon.

Ngala offers a range of community programs that work with and for families and community members to enhance their experience of parenting and the development of children and young people.

The keynote speaker was Dr Kelsie Prabawa-Sear, CEO of Nature Play Australia and Nature Play WA. Dr Prabawa-Sear spoke of the importance of outside play for children’s healthy development and well-being. This included play out in nature, with other children, using their imaginations and learning their limits and boundaries. Research shows that children at play are inhibited by adult supervision and should be given opportunities to play (in safe situations) without those restrictions.
