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.

Philosophy asks ''Why are things the way they are?'' and, ''Should they be that way?'' To explore such questions, well ask what can be known, what is worth valuing, what is reality, and how societies should be structured to allow for human flourishing. This can contribute to the growth and development of individuals and communities. Come for meaty discussion and fresh thinking about big ideas.
