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, 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 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.

Enrolments for Term 4 commenced on Wednesday 13 October and are ongoing throughout the term, spaces permitting.

According to Sandra, age is not a number; it's the final act of the theatre of life, full of memories, of moments, of experiences, and even wisdom. It has its pain, but that's life so let's not regret these numbers we've achieved. Let's relish them.

5 sessions: This series will lead you down the remarkable path of the evolving role of DNA analysis in identifying the perpetrators of serious crime. After exploring the first homicide case ever to be solved by the early technique of DNA fingerprinting, we will progress to the development of DNA STR profiling and to the latest technologies, genetic phenotyping and genetic genealogy. We'll illustrate with a range of new and fascinating cold cases, most solved only within the past 12 months. We will explore the building of family trees to identify relatives of the offender and how that approach is used to reveal the name of the perpetrator. As we progress from one case to the next, the complexities of the genealogical analysis will increase and we will uncover miscarriages of justice along the way. In the final lecture, drawing on Australian, British and American cases, we will focus on the medical, forensic and legal complexities associated with distinguishing between cot death and murder and how these complexities have resulted in probable miscarriages of justice. Note, we are not able to accept bookings for individual sessions.

3 Sessions: Jung was one of the twentieth century's greatest psychoanalysts, looking at the mind as more than just a personal, limited, finite repository of thoughts, perceptions and desires. Join Ruperto in uncovering the philosopher, revealing his hidden metaphysical treasures.

Writing about taboo subjects is a challenging task for any writer. Doing this well - and without causing outrage - is an artform. This session will explore the concept and function of taboo in society. We'll look at the power of writers to shine a light on even the darkest topic, and provide tips and tools for writing about what society deems as taboo subjects with insight and sensitivity. Please note that this workshop may not be suitable for everyone - while the focus will be on the craft of writing, some people may not be comfortable with some of the topics.
