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 by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and and ongoing funding. Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

This scrapbook, closed for 150 years, is now open and digitised. It is a personal record kept by John Forrest of his 1869, 1870 and 1874 expeditions and reveals a young man documenting his achievements in a collection of letters, telegrams and reports in newspapers - mostly accolades of his difficult desert journeys as team leader. The most arduous was in 1874 from Geraldton across to the north/south telegraph line and down to Adelaide. He valued his "scraps" as keepsakes and pasted them into a leather-bound scrapbook. Come and explore the journey of the scrapbook and the man.

Maybe you love to play table games with friends, but you find Scrabble, Mahjong or Bridge too hard or too competitive. So, what about joining a group to play those easy board games we loved when we were kids? Games like Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Chinese Chequers and Dominoes. No scores kept and no prizes; just some easy fun, some good laughs and some memories of the "good old days" before games were played on a computer or smartphone.

Bus tour. Experience the wonders of the night sky on a Lumineer Star Gazing tour. Join us on a comfortable journey with the same company that took us to the Pinnacles in 2023. We start with a stop in the Swan Valley, where you can enjoy a refreshing coffee (at own expense) and take a quick break. Next, we will visit an old winery in Toodyay, where you can indulge in a delightful wine-tasting experience, savouring the flavours of the region. Well then head to a camel farm where you can get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures and learn about their fascinating lives. As the sun sets, well gather in a picturesque field for a mouth-watering barbeque, and then, as darkness falls, well be provided with stargazing equipment, to marvel at the celestial wonders above. To conclude this enchanting experience, we will experience a soothing sound healing meditation, providing a moment of tranquillity and reflection under the starry night sky. This sound healing was a highlight of our Pinnacles adventure. Meet opposite 16 Prinsep Road, Melville at 2.15pm for 2.30pm departure. Book by 1 March.
