R U OK?

 

Fremantle Notre Dame University students came up with a creative idea to raise awareness for mental health and R U OK? DAY.

Students were handed small bags with paint in them to throw at a canvas, that will become an abstract painting depicting all the moods and nuances of life.

NOTRE DAME STUDENTS LOOK AFTER ENVIRONMENT

Fremantle NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY students have declared a WAR on Waste with their mini-campaign to collect disposable coffee cups at campus.

The Sustainability Club members collect the cups from rubbish bins and streets around the campus, and they plan to separate the cups from the lids, as the lids can be recycled, but the cups sadly still go into landfill.

The Sustainability Club was launched at UNDA in the last semester break by mature-age student Claire O’Loughlin, who said that he UNDA Keep Cup campaign has been very successful, where the club sells re-usable cups at cost to students.

If only 100 students buy a re-usable cup that would be at least 500 disposable cups per weeks that don’t go into landfill. UNDA has over 6,000 students and hundreds of staff!

The focus of the club will be on coffee/tea cups, straws, plastic bottles and single-use bags.

The cups are taken from the trailer every day, so that the sea breeze does not pick them up and blow them around town and into the Indian Ocean. I took the photo at 10 am this morning, so that are a lot of cups already early in the morning.

It is great to see our Freo students looking after the environment, as plastic is killing our oceans fast. Well done!

SOUTH FREO HIGH 50TH PARTY!

Posted in city of fremantle, education, schools, Uncategorized by freoview on September 6, 2017

 

50 years South Freo High

SFSHS Open Day 2017

 

The South Fremantle Senior High School on Lefroy Road in Beaconsfield will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this Saturday, September 9 from 10 am to 3 pm.

There will be an historic display, live music, kids activities, reunion by decades area, food stalls, and more, so make sure to pop in and help them celebrate.

We all have important memories of our schools, the good and not so good teachers, and the importance of good education for our careers and life.

Teachers are critically important to the future of our children and very under-valued in my opinion.

Without my teachers in the Netherlands I would never have valued history and heritage so much, and would never have felt the urge to travel and experience new cultures. My history and English teacher Mr Hartog made a profound impact on my life.

NOTRE DAME UNI THE BEST

Posted in city of fremantle, education, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on August 31, 2017

 

 

We are lucky to have such a highly-regarded and loved university in Fremantle. Notre Dame University consistently rates as one of the best in Australia.

Maybe it’s time to change our signs at entries to Freo and promote it as University City, like they do in the old country, where there is a real pride in Oxford, Cambridge and elsewhere.
