Herald Ad 2016 Open Day

 

My friends at the Fremantle LANCE HOLT School are holding an OPEN DAY this Saturday September 17 from 10-12 am.

The independent community school offers an integrated program  for children from 3-year-old Kindi to Year Six and is highly regarded by Freo parents who love the relaxed atmosphere at the school.

The school is at 10 Henry Street in the historic West End of town and was established in 1970 by Lance Holt.

ARCHBISHOP, RABBI AND SHEIK SPEAK AT NOTRE DAME UNI

Posted in education, fremantle, learning, notre dame university, religion, universities, western australia by freoview on September 7, 2016

I believe next Tuesday’s Abraham: Our Father in Faith event at  Fremantle Notre Dame University will be very interesting to listen to, even for an Atheist like myself, as the three speakers are from different religions.

Speakers will be Archbishop Timothy Costello, Rabbi Dovid Freilich and Sheikh Muhammad Agherdien, so there will be a broad range of views to listen to.

There will be a Q&A session after the speakers, so come and ask the hard questions politely.

The event is on at 2.30 pm on Tuesday September 13 in the Tannock Hall of UNDA, corner Cliff and Croke streets, opposite the Fremantle Herald.

The ARTE RICCA 2016 art show opens this Friday September 9 from 6-8 pm at the Beehive Montessori School at Curtin Avenue, Mosman Park, just past Fremantle’s Leighton Beach.

There is a large list of highly-regarded WA artists on the list of exhibitors, such as Alessandra Rossi, Annette Orr, Ben Joel, Eveline Kotai, Giles Hohnen, Jillian Green, Jon Denaro, Marrie Hobbs, Olga Cironis, Paul Moncrieff, Penny Coss, and many more, so all you art lovers, and more importantly art buyers! go and have a look.

The exhibition is also open on September 10, 11, 12, 16, 17 and 18.

The 30% commission becomes a tax-deductible donation to the school for the artists, and it funds the school’s Artist in Residence program.

Arte Ricca supports Beehive Montessori’s Capital Gifting Program, and this year proceeds from the exhibition will contribute to the school’s Artist-in-Residence Program.

NOTRE DAME UNI ACADEMY AWARD AD

Posted in education, fremantle, learning, notre dame university, western australia by freoview on August 27, 2016

notre dame

 

This very impressive full-page advertisement of Notre Dame University in the West Australian caught my eye this morning, as it looks like the promotion of an Oscar winning movie. The Lunchpack of Notre Dame maybe because the Fremantle uni students can enjoy all the quirky cafes and shops in town?

Notre Dame is no doubt a very popular university in Australia and Fremantle as is shown in the Good Universities Guide of 2017 again.

Notre Dame University received five-star ratings for:

*  Overall quality of education

*  Teaching quality

* Learning engagement

*  Student support

*  Skills development

*  Graduate employment

*  Median graduate salary

I love having Notre Dame in Fremantle as it has significantly revitalised the historic West End of Fremantle, and they are a very nice organisation to deal with, as I know from my own experience with them.

My friends at Fremantle NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY are holding their annual Open Day today till 3 pm, so go and have a look. There is live music in one of the courtyards and it is always a very relaxed, friendly and very Freo day.

I went just after they opened at 10 am and there were already a lot of parents and young people talking to staff, academics and students, so her some photo impressions of the day.

OPEN DAY AT FREO NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY

Fremantle NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY will hold its annual Open Day this Sunday August 21 from 10 am to 3 pm.

It is always a fun and vibrant day in Freo’s historic West End with entertainment and food trucks, but most importantly a chance for future students and their parents to talk to academics and current students and find out about the uni’s programs.

Notre Dame has one of the highest ratings of student satisfaction in Australia and is also highly rated academically, and it is the only university in WA in the centre of a beautiful heritage precinct.

Come along this Sunday as it is open to everyone, and check out the cute promo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7Pir4xpA_g

MALALA WINS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Malala Yousafzai

This is not a Fremantle story but it is one many of us cried about. MALALA YOUSAFZAY, who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she spoke out about education for girls in her country, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with Kailash Satyarthi.

They were awarded the prestigious prize “For their struggle against surpression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”

It is a reminder to all of us that “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”

I believe it is our duty in Australia to engage in the privilege of the democratic process and to stand up for minority groups and social justice.

Well done UNDA!
