It’s another perfect autumn day in beautiful Fremantle so ideal to enjoy the school holidays.
There are lots of families and young people wandering around Freo and many are sampling the seafood delights in the Fishing Boat Harbour.
It is very important that the community connects with its youth and try to find out how they tick, what they desire, and that we listen to the many innovative ideas they have, so today is a good day to do that at the Fremantle skate park on the Esplanade.
National Youth Week 2017 is closing in spectacular style at our very own Esplanade Youth Plaza. A local lineup of musicians, DJs and WA’s best skateboarders surrounded by chill zones and food vans from 12-4 pm today.
The SWITCH ( Fremantle youth advisory council) will also be hosting a Ferris Forum – jump in for a ride and share your opinion on the forums hot topic.

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.
Congratulations are due to Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt who announced at Council meeting this evening that his partner Emma is expecting a baby.
I adore babies as I believe they are the true miracles of this world so I am truly delighted for Emma and Brad!
Children are the future of our planet so if we can support them we should do so.
The Fremantle Moore&Moore cafe is collection clothing, books and toys to distribute to disadvantaged kids, so if you’ve got anything, or want to buy some new stuff to donate, please drop it off at 46 Henry Street in Freo’s gorgeous West End.
Opening of the new children’s playground at the Paper Bird children’s bookshop and Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street this Sunday February 19 from 9-11.30.
They are launching the new courtyard and joining with the rest of the Moores Building to create an open arts precinct.
Art studios will be open, including the Moores Gallery Studios Resident Artists, and free kids activities: 9am Wild Movement Perth will run a nature play session, 9.30am Story Time, 10am Inkling Art Space open workshop + Great food & coffee from Moore & Moore Cafe. See you there!
The well-established Moore&Moore cafe and the one-year-old Paper Bird children’s book shop in Fremantle’s Henry Street have combined their talents to create a Nature Play area in the courtyard of the gorgeous heritage Moores building.
The courtyard of the M&MN has always been very Freo and cosy but by linking it with the courtyard of the lovely bookshop is has become even more special, so parents check it out. Nice to have a safe playground away from traffic in the old inner city.
Very good to hear also that the sales of children’s books has increased by 15 per cent in the last year. I have always been an avid reader and love it when children read instead of sitting in front of the TV, X Box or the computer.
Reading inspired me to travel, made me aware of other cultures and gave me a great escape while increasing my common knowledge. It also made me interested in languages and writing. I wrote my very first poem the day John F Kennedy was shot.
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.
