Another reminder that this coming Sunday August 19 is OPEN DAY at one of WA’s most popular universities Notre Dame Australia in Fremantle.

This is an important day for parents and high school students to talk to NDA staff and lecturers and check out the great campus in the heart of the historic West End of Freo.

There will be entertainment and food stalls that help create an invigorating sense of activity while planning the future.

This is an early notice for parents who have children in the last Leavers year at high schools that Fremantle’s best in the west Notre Dame University will have an Open Day on Sunday August 19.

The NDA Open Days are always very nice days with lots of information stalls inside campus buildings and also along Mouat Street, and there is live entertainment and food stalls, so make sure to make a note of it in your diary, parents and students!

MARGARET RIVER STUDENTS VISIT FREMANTLE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, education, heritage, roundhouse, Uncategorized, volunteers by freoview on July 27, 2018

 

 

school at Roundhouse

 

The Fremantle Roundhouse was full with students from the Margaret River Primary School this Friday.

150 of them, with teachers and parents, made the day trip to good old Freo to visit the Fremantle Prison, Maritime and Shipwreck museums and the state’s oldest public building the Roundhouse prison.

I helped out with the time ball at 1pm as we were short staffed, but it is a truly delightful volunteer job to talk to people from all over the world and with local and country students about Fremantle’s history.

We are always looking for new volunteers, willing to commit themselves for a day a week or a fortnight.

Did you know that Centrelink does allow this to be a work for the dole occupation and what better one to do! No stress, great and funny colleagues and getting to know all those lovely people from our global village. Come and try it!

One makes enemies for life when one ignores the North Fremantle community, so I’d better give a plug for the catering at the North Freo Primary School at Saturday’s FEDERAL BI-ELECTION DAY, after I did the same for the Freo Primary School.

It’s not a competition, so people in those areas please supports the P&C of these schools, and others such as the Beacy Primary, close to where I live!

Vote for Labor’s Josh Wilson. He is a good bloke!

THE HORIZON IS THE FUTURE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, education, future, schools, Uncategorized by freoview on June 25, 2018

 

leavers

 

For these school leavers pondering what to do next in life at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach, the horizon is the future. Only the limitations we set for ourselves prevent us from reaching the great potential we all have.

It is better to fail than not to have tried!

The girls at the PLC-Perth Ladies College are raised the tough way. The wet and cold weather today did not stop them from hopping on the train to Fremantle, where they also visited the historic Roundhouse.

They are looking at the fresh water well here.

FREO NOTRE DAME GOT STARS IN THEIR EYES

Posted in abc, city of fremantle, education, notre dame university, sky, Uncategorized by freoview on May 24, 2018

 

 

The world record attempt to have the most people looking at stars at the same time across Australia was held last night and 69 Fremantle Notre Dame University students and staff and the Fremantle community took part in the event from the lawn next to the Roundhouse.

The world record attempt was initiated by the ABC and by ANU, Canberra. NDA was the only WA university participating in the event.

I had to attend the council meeting, so I am grateful for the photos sent by Leigh Dawson and Dylan Korczynskyj of NDA. Thanks Leigh and Dylan!

UPDATE! I heard on ABC TV this eve that it was a Guinness Book WORLD RECORD!

NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY RATED FIRST

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on May 17, 2018

 

Fremantle and Broome Notre Dame University campuses have excelled for the third year running in a nationwide survey of students commissioned by the Federal Government.

Findings from the combined results for undergraduate 2016 and 2017 Student Experience Survey (SES), announced yesterday, show Notre Dame achieving outstanding results, placing it first in Western Australia in five of six key indicators – ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’, ‘Teaching Quality’, ‘Skills Development’, ‘Learner Engagement’ and ‘Student Support’.

The SES is unique in that it draws feedback from students with the aim of helping students to make informed decisions about future study by enabling them to compare universities across states and disciplines. More than 351,000 students from around Australia responded to the combined 2016 and 2017 SES, including over 4000 students from Notre Dame’s Fremantle, Broome and Sydney Campuses.

Notre Dame also continues to excel nationally, being placed first in Australia for ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’ with a 91.1% rating, well above the national average of 79.3%. It is ranked second nationally for ‘Learner Engagement’ with a 78.6% rating, compared to 64.1% nationally, and ‘Skills Development’ at 90.7% compared to the national average of 81%.

Results from the undergraduate Graduate Outcomes Survey, released in January this year, show Notre Dame rated first in WA for ‘Overall Graduate Satisfaction’, ‘Teaching Scale’, ‘Skills Scale’, ‘Full-time Employment’, ‘Overall Employment’ and ‘Median Salary’.
