The Moorditj Koort Open Day was held on Wednesday the 15th of December to highlight the services and programs that are available to the community.


Jack Walley (Vice Chairperson) welcomed everyone and introduced Local Community Elder Charlie Kickett to with an official Welcome to Country.


Visitors enjoyed a variety of activities including a sausage sizzle, door prizes, dancers, live band, and kids’ activities. There was also a pop up COVID-19 vaccination clinic to make it convenient for people to get vaccinated at the event.


Information stalls were also available to highlight some of the main services and programs that Moorditj Koort offers including the Community Connect, Country to City, Kwinana School Program, Integrated Team Care, and NDIS Support and Coordination.


As the year end approaches, the open day provided an opportunity to meet with the public, listen to their feedback and share information on health and wellbeing support. 


Moorditj Koort CEO, Neil O’Donnell said the event was designed to be informative and engaging to promote their services and programs. 


“The aim of the open day is to engage more broadly with the local community and invite them to learn more about what we do at Moorditj Koort,” said Mr O’Donnell.


“Our vision is to provide Aboriginal people with access to a holistic one-stop-shop for health and wellbeing support and the open day enables us to connect with our clients and showcase our work.”


Neil O’Donnell said he was thrilled to see everyone enjoying themselves at the open day.


“The atmosphere on the day was fantastic and all the families were having a great time participating in all kinds of activities,” said Mr O’Donnell.


“A highlight of the day featured performances by well renowned Indigenous singers Bunna Lawrie from Coloured Stone and Delson Stokes from Yabu Band playing famous hits ‘Black Boy & Dancing in Moolight’ which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.”


“Our team did a fantastic job with the event, and I want to thank them for all their hard work in organising all the activities on the day,” he said.
