The City of Kalamunda Council has endorsed, for public advertising, a proposal to name the park bordered by Koda Mews and Crimson Boulevard in Forrestfield Noel Morich Park, after a request from Noel’s family was made and considered under the City’s recently adopted policy on the naming of Parks, Reserves, Streets and Infrastructure. The proposal is now open for community feedback.

Mr Bernard (Noel) Morich was born on 30 January 1944 and moved to Forrestfield in 1979. Mr Morich dedicated close to 40 years to the district teaching culture and history and made a significant contribution to the region.

Noel was employed at the Education Department, where he worked as the sole Aboriginal Liaison Officer in the Perth Metropolitan Area, including schools in the district. In this work he played a vital role in teaching culture and supporting Aboriginal Students attending schools throughout Perth.

In his later years he was involved in many Welcome to Country’s, Heritage work and was a part of the Whadjuk Working Party from the early 2000s. This group undertook significant work with the City as a part of the development undertaken at the Hartfield Park Maamba site.

The family has requested the site bordered by Koda Mews and Crimson Boulevard in Forrestfield be named Noel Morich Park.
