Wasn't Sister Kates in Queens Park much the same as Ngala?I'm aware that Ngala in Bentley was a place who would house unmarried mothers in the late sixties. One lady I know was taken to King Edward Memorial hospital in the middle of the night and gave birth, the baby was taken soon after. Another lady I know was adopted through Ngala. Her mother had stayed at Ngala. The daughter has a birth certificate but it's not the original one, she's not allowed to have it. Any woman who was unmarried in the sixties or beforehand would have found it very difficult, unless someone like a grandparent took them on.
My kids went to the school across the road from it, Queens park primary, and a lot of the children from there went to the school..
