Who We Are

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre, 42 Glyde Street, East Fremantle, offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich your enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.

We aim to be a source of learning that doesn't cost the earth, that doesn't need prior knowledge or qualifications, and doesn't ask for a huge commitment of your time. Our courses are non-competitive and informal. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! The Centre is run by a volunteer Management Committee, and four part-time staff members. We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are also supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and its maintenance, and very substantial funding.

Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

Note:  Concession eligibility is for those holding an Age Pension Card, a DVA Card or a Health Care Card (not National Seniors' Health Care Card).

When problems cannot be resolved by individual governments or organisations, the concept of global governance raises its head again. But more often it is conspicuous by its absence. Many people would like to see more effective global governance, but preferences alone are unlikely to bring it about. Mark Beeson, Professor of International Politics at UWA, explains some of the obstacles it faces and suggests that, for all its problems, we need it more than ever.

Theres a definite relationship, says Nick Nation, between our digestion and our mental well-being. Its not for nothing that we use phrases like a gut feeling or I cant stomach the thought.

Voicemale is a Fremantle-based group of blokes who sing. (Their leader Digby Hill is also choirmaster of the Glyde-In Songsters.) Voicemales repertoire includes the complicated Georgian polyphony. Recently the group travelled to that country to sing traditional Georgian and Australian songs, and to learn more of the music. The trip was a hoot and a hit, and Shirley Guy, a member of the Glyde-In Songsters went along for the joy of it. She tells the tale.
