Wanju – Welcome

When you arrive at the Northbridge TAFE Jobs and Skills Centre, you will see signage with the message  ‘Wanju’ meaning ‘Welcome’ in the Noongar language of the Aboriginal people of the South West of Western Australia. The signage pays respect to the land on which the centre stands, and it is an invitation and a welcome to Aboriginal clients and all members of the community. Each metropolitan Jobs and Skills Centre proudly displays one of the six seasons in the Noongar seasonal calendar.  In the Noongar culture, changes in the environment signalled the change in season, and with each season Noongar people moved to take advantage of natural resources and opportunities.

Djeran season – Cool and pleasant 
April and May, autumn

Cooler weather begins.

Fishing continued and bulbs and seeds were collected for food. 

Djeran is the welcome you'll see at the Northbridge Jobs and Skills Centre. 

The artwork for the Seasons signage was created by Nate Stuart, of the Rockingham Jobs and Skills Centre. Features in Nate’s designs relate each centre with the local Noongar language and culture, as well as linking all metropolitan centres together. The designs were developed in consultation with Aboriginal staff in the Department of Training and Workforce Development, Noongar Elder Danny Ford, and Aboriginal consultant Marissa Verma. Mr Ford and Ms Verma have also approved the final designs and their appropriate allocation to each of the six metropolitan centres.
