NEW ANGLICAN SCHOOL FOR FREMANTLE?

Posted in children, city of fremantle, education, learning, religion, schools, Uncategorized by freoview on July 28, 2019

 

A proposal to establish a new low-fee co-educational Anglican school in the Fremantle CBD is currently under consideration by the Anglican Schools Commission (ASC).

The ASC is keen to bring our brand of school to the community of Fremantle. Our schools provide outstanding teaching and learning in a safe, caring Christian environment.”

 The proposed new school would open in the next five years, initially catering for students in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6, and expanding to Year 12 thereafter.

 It will be a multi-storey campus in the heart of Fremantle, providing a unique and creative learning environment which expands beyond the school grounds.

Tuition fees are estimated to be in the range of $6,000 – $9,000 in the primary school and $10,000 to $12,000 in the secondary school.

OUT-FOX SCHOOL HOLIDAY BOREDOM AT SPAREPARTS PUPPET THEATRE

 

 

There is a new play on for the school holidays at Fremantle’s Spare Parts Puppet Theatre so make sure to take the kids there.

Fox, A landmark in Australian children’s literature becomes a truly unforgettable experience on stage in the next school holidays show from July 6-20.

Adapted from the award-winning book by Margaret Wild (Miss Lily’s Fabulous Feather Boa) and Ron Brooks (The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek)Fox tells the story of unlikely companions, Dog and Magpie, who team up after a bushfire, and what happens when an even unlikelier friend, Fox, the outsider, enters their lives.

Fox is a contemporary classic fable and like all great fables this extraordinary tale will resonate long after you leave the theatre. With the delightful fun-filled Dog, Fox’s villainy and Magpie’s love, children and adults alike will be drawn in to the story and find much joy and excitement.

This breathtaking collaboration between choreographer Jacob Lehrer, creative consultant Noriko Nishimoto, director Michael Barlow, and designer Leon Hendroff is brought to life on the stage through dance, digital projection and beautiful puppetry.

Award winning dancer, Rachel Arianne Ogle, one of Australia’s leading contemporary dancers, is Fox in all her ochre brilliance. Ogle’s athleticism as a dancer and spellbinding puppetry skill will captivate audiences, while Gala Shevtsov and Scott Galbraith will win hearts as devoted friends, Magpie and Dog.

IT’S BEST MUM IN THE WORLD DAY

Posted in aboriginal, children, city of fremantle, family, mothers, mothers day, Uncategorized by freoview on May 12, 2019

 

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! to all those special mums out there.

It is too often forgotten how much you sacrifice for your child(ren) and that child birth often means that the career of a woman comes to a screeching halt.

It is especially demanding for single mothers to bring up children, so we salute you!

Many mothers care for their child(ren) at home until they enroll in school and often that means it is very difficult to get back into the work force and restart one’s career.

Those of us who no longer have a mum remember her fondly for the special home-cooked meals, and caring love.

Children sometimes take the dedication, nurturing and love of their mum for granted, so today all mums deserve to be spoiled rotten. Enjoy it.

And a special thought goes out to those Aboriginal mums whose child(dren) were taken away from them during the Stolen Generations times. My thoughts are with you!

IT’S RIDE TO SCHOOL DAY THIS FRIDAY

 

Ride to School Day

Have you organised that your children, accompanied by a parent, ride to school this Friday?

March 22 is National Ride2School Day, so a great day to get started on not driving to school or using public transport.

If more kids rode to school we might need less of the 600 new Diesel!!! buses the McGowan government has announced it will get made for Perth.

We do not need more diesel pollution and we need to be more aware that all these things contribute to global warming. From little things big things grow!

FREO’S MOORE&MOORE CAFE CELEBRATES 11TH BIRTHDAY!

MM 3

 

Congratulations to Simon Naber, who started the great Moore&Moore cafe in Fremantle’s Henry Street 11 years ago. Well done!!!

Simon developed the lovely cafe into a wedding and function centre and was also the first to build a parklet for alfresco dining in Fremantle. He also created a children’s playground in the back courtyard which is shared with the Paper Bird children’s book shop.

The M&M is very popular with Notre Dame University students, who manage to make a cup of coffee last for hours so that they can use the free wifi in the building.

Great food, great coffee, great service and often great art in the arts centre, and live music several mornings each week.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre presents its  production of Moominpappa at Sea, an adaptation of celebrated Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson’s book, at its Fremantle Short Street theatre at Princess May Park from January 14 for the 2019 summer holidays.

Moominpappa at Sea follows a family of Moomin trolls who embark on a great adventure to find a new home on a rocky, windswept island far out to sea. As the Moomins explore the mysterious surroundings of their new island home, we get a unique opportunity to see the world through their eyes, and this adventure story of a family ‘at sea’ becomes a journey of self-discovery for us all.

This timeless and imaginative story is brought to life by the director and solo performer, Michael Barlow who draws you into the lives of these enchanting creatures as they face challenges with courage, humour and optimism.

Moominpappa at Sea is the eighth novel in the legendary Moomin series. Jansson’s witty and whimsical Moomin characters have captured the imaginations of millions around the world, inspiring movies, TV shows and theme parks, and even the naming of the asteroid, Moomintroll in 1995.

The season begins on January 14 and runs until February 2, with two shows daily at 10am and 1pm, Monday to Saturday (no shows Sundays or Public Holidays).

There are also three special evening performances on January 18 and 25, and February 1 at 6.30pm. At 45 minutes and suitable for ages five and above, Moominpappa at Sea is a charming and timeless show that will delight and inspire all ages to be more curious about the world around us.
