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. For a copy of the Chair's 2020 report, please click HERE.

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

Enrolments for Term 4 open on 14 October.

Mindfulness and positive psychology are hugely powerful, not only to cope but to feel more in control, calm and content. In a light-hearted and sharing way we explore a little theory and then some practices that will help us feel more accepting and comfortable in our own skin. Please bring a cushion and an open, curious mind.

The shogun, or Japans hereditary commander-in-chief, was the real ruler of Japan until feudalism was abolished in 1867. The shogun capital was Edo, a sleepy little town that gradually transformed into a political city known from 1868 as Tokyo. Takeshi takes us on a street view of old Tokyo as drawn by artists of the 1800s and offers glimpse into the culture and society of the time.
