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! 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.

Note:  Concession eligibility is for those holding an Age Pension Card, a DVA Card or a Health Care Card (not National Seniors' Health Care Card).

When we think of ageing, we think memory loss, but our brains decline in many ways, for example in our reflex capacity and fine motor control. So we might not quickly dodge an oncoming cyclist, or we have trouble using our hands for delicate tasks. This can lead to hospitalisation or care, which can influence our mental health. Murdoch University researchers are looking at non-invasive ways to stimulate the brains of healthy older adults as well as those with some impairment, which might translate into treatment for Parkinson's, dementia, stroke and the like. Come and hear more; if you want you can become involved.
