Noongar Season of Makuru
There is much to learn about how our local environment responds to the changing seasons by learning more about the Noongar people's seasonal calendar. Their information is derived from the accumulated experience of more than 45,000 years of continuous living in Australia's south west. During June and July we journey through the Season of Makuru.
Makuru marks the coldest and wettest season of the year, when there are more frequent gales and storms.
To learn more about Makuru, read our school newsletter (Issue 3, 2020) or go to the Bureau of Meteorology indigenous seasonal calendar webpage at http://www.bom.gov.au/iwk/calendars/nyoongar.shtml.
