Who We Are

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, including art and craft classes, language classes and computer classes. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! Glyde-In is committed to the inclusion and recognition of all members. The premises are wheelchair accessible. 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 by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and and ongoing funding.

While in Australia Taiwan is known mostly for its geopolitical significance, few know much beyond its status as the potential trigger of conflict between China and the US (and Australia). Providing a different perspective on this small but surprising nation, Jane looks at cultural highlights of Taiwans capital city, Taipei, and the natural wonders of its mountainous north west, which she recently visited.

Astrologers claim that planetary movements play an important role in shaping the tapestry of human experience. The alignment of planets can have profound impacts on an individuals behaviour, psyche and decision making process, and may trigger specific events in an individuals life and more globally. Drawing from key historical events and examples from the lives of some well-known celebrities, Celine will demonstrate the intricate connections between planetary positions and political affairs, cultural trends, societal movements and the lives of individuals. She will also explore the current astrological landscape and its potential.

Please note chage of date. Maybe you love to play table games with friends, but you find Scrabble, Mahjong or Bridge too hard or too competitive. So, what about joining a group to play those easy board games we loved when we were kids? Games like Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Chinese Chequers and Dominoes. No scores kept and no prizes; just some easy fun, some good laughs and some memories of the ''good old days'' before games were played on a computer or smartphone.

Bus trip. Experience our amazing night sky through a wide range of telescopes. We have chosen a dark sky night (the moon is waning and is in the last quarter) so that we can see a large number of celestial objects in the sky. Volunteers at the observatory will explain how to use telescopes and describe what we are seeing. You will also be able to browse the observatory museum and see historical instruments, the meteorite exhibit and astro-photographs. Dinner will be at the Kalamunda Hotel (at own expense). Come dressed suitably for the colder temperatures in the hills and the dark night and wear comfortable walking shoes. The ground can be uneven so take care, stay with the group and follow the instructions of the Observatory staff. Meet opposite 16 Prinsep Road, Melville at 4pm for 4.15pm departure Book by 17 May

Train or meet there. Well catch the 11.12am train to Guildford in time for lunch at the Guildford Milk Bar (at own expense). It''s then a 10 min walk to the heritage-listed Garrick Theatre club where we''ll see George Bernard Shaw''s classic Pygmalion. Henry Higgins, a phonetician, accepts a bet that simply by changing the speech of a Cockney flower seller he will be able, in six months, to pass her off as a duchess. After Eliza completes the grueling training, she successfully ''passes" in high society - having in the process become a lovely young woman of sensitivity and taste. Higgins then dismisses her abruptly as a successfully completed experiment. Meet at Fremantle train station at 10.55am or at Guildford Station at 12.04pm. Book by 9 May.

One hundred years ago, on 10 June 1924, the leader of the Italian Socialist Party, Giacomo Matteotti, was kidnapped and killed by a fascist squad. Six months later Mussolini launched a series of very fascist laws which cancelled all civil and political rights and liberties in Italy for the next 20 years. Fausto will shed light on the events, characters, historical context and spirit of that dark time, as the assassination of political opponents by authoritarian regimes around the world seemingly continues.
