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 1 commence on Wednesday 3 February. Please see our NEWS page for more information.

Astonishingly, we each carry approximately 2kg of gut bacteria around with us. Our understanding of what constitutes a healthy gut is evolving. Rather than increasing so called 'good' bacteria and decreasing 'bad' bacteria we now know that the key is in the diversity and balance of our gut microbiome. When that balance is disturbed, we suffer the effects - generally in the loo in the form of either constipation or diarrhoea. Hear how to keep or restore that vital balance.
