HAMPTON ROAD PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

Posted in cars, city of fremantle, schools, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on December 14, 2017

 

Fremantle Council sent the pedestrian crossing safety issues at the intersection of Hampton Road and Scott Street back to the drawing board after complaints by members of the community and businesses.

A new median strip had been installed so that traffic heading south along Hampton Road could no longer turn right into Scott Street to the shopping centre, while traffic from Scott Street east could only turn left and south.

This was done to make pedestrian crossing for the students and parents of the Beaconsfield Primary School safer.

As someone who lives there the issues are that traffic coming from the south now needs to turn right into Jenkin Street and then along Maxwell Street to head further east to the school and Hale and Livingston Street. That has significantly increased traffic in that dog leg, and there is no 40kmh school zone in Maxwell Street, but there is in Scott and Hale streets.

One of the problems along Hampton Road is motorists speeding and overtaking in the bus lane, and exiting Scott Street always has been dicey because one can hardly see around the corner.

Pedestrian traffic lights are probably the best solution, but Mainroads will no doubt be reluctant to install them along a major road.

The 50th anniversary of the South Fremantle Senior High School was a nice community event, but even more impressive is the entry of the new Fremantle College building. It’s stunning!

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.

FREMANTLE COLLEGE DEVELOPING WELL

The new building at the South Fremantle Senior High School in Lefroy Road is developing well and looking good. I finally stopped yesterday to take photos.

The school will merge in January with the Hamilton Senior High School and become the new FREMANTLE COLLEGE, but is celebrating its 50th anniversary in September a sign says.

I hope that once the development is completed the Growers Green Farmers Market can return to its old location, but time will tell.

School holidays are upon us again and all these gorgeous kids deserve special treats of course.

There is plenty on in Freo from Hatchiko at Spareparts Theatre to a Bunny Hunt organised by BID. There is also the very special tours of the Ocean Warrior, the Sea Shepherd ship that saves whales!

If that is not enough, a trip to the Shipwreck Museum and Roundhouse are also fun, and educational and the Fremantle International Street Arts Festival is coming up next weekend.

FREO PART OF LOW CARBON SCHOOLS PILOT PROGRAM

Posted in city of fremantle, education, environment, schools, western australia by freoview on July 23, 2016

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.
