Come on kids, take your parents and grand parents out for kind of treasure hunt around Fremantle and win some great prizes
It is on from January 14-29 and you can spread it over 2-3 days if you can’t get it all done in one 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.
An innovative eighteen months long pilot program to reduce carbon emissions at schools has just started, with the City of Fremantle subsidising six schools; Fremantle Primary School, John Curtin, South Fremantle Senior High School, Winterfold Primary School, Lance Holt and Samson Primary School.
The Low Carbon Schools Pilot Program is facilitated by Simply Carbon in partnership with CRC for Low Carbon Living.
The program began with a series of workshops in February, where school principals, teachers, staff and parents were ‘up-skilled’ so they know how to reduce resource consumption, carbon emissions and costs in their school.
Each school has developed its own action plan to reduce their emissions and will be implementing them over the next eighteen months.
The schools will meet monthly to share experience and progress and to talk about partnership opportunities with local businesses and organisations.
Western Australian Education Minister Peter Collier announced this morning that the South Fremantle Senior High School and the Hamilton Senior High School will be merged into the new FREMANTLE COLLEGE.
The new school will be on the Lefroy Road site of the SFSHS and will be upgraded and expanded at a cost of $ 30 million. The independent school will be for years 7 to 12 students and will have a special gifted student program.
It is really good to see how popular the Fremantle ESPLANADE YOUTH PLAZA is. The place was packed today with kids and families, doing all sorts of activities, and a couple of police officers also keeping an eye on it. But it is a very peaceful and respectful environment at the EYP and that is one of the best things of it all.
At the Spare Parts Theatre the FARM play is on but also the School of Puppetry doing workshops for kids, and outside in Pioneer Park there are big colourful figures made by the people of the wheatbelt town of Merredin.
