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! 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 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.

A modified, shorter and simpler version of traditional Tai Chi, Tai Chill has similar benefits for flexibility, strength, balance and peace of mind, says Roz. It can be done standing or seated. Its fun and definitely worthwhile.

We intuitively accept apologies as beneficial. Alfred examines the reasons we feel distressed by violations to the norm, and how an apology can serve as remedy. But while they can appear to be simple actions, apologies are actually very complex sets of behaviour that occasionally do more harm than good. He will consider how apologies function, and some practical implications of research into the act of saying sorry. You might be surprised.
