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.

NOTRE DAME SCHOLARSHIP FOR ABORIGINAL MEDICINE STUDENTS

 

A $160,000 scholarship fund designed to support Aboriginal students at Fremantle’s Notre Dame University’s School of Medicine will make an important contribution of improving healthcare in the country’s Aboriginal communities.

Announced by St John of God Health Care, the fund will support four Aboriginal students throughout their studies at the University’s School of Medicine.

Professor Selma Alliex, Pro Vice Chancellor and Head of Campus said that “Yet again St John of God Health Care has assisted the University in fulfilling its mission of caring for disadvantaged students”

Nationwide to date only 427 Aboriginal students have graduated with a medical degree with a further 325 currently studying medicine.

When you compare that number to the 3,500 Aboriginal doctors required to reach population parity you begin to understand the challenges associated with Aboriginal heath care,” she added.

The St John of God Health Care scholarships will help build on The School of Medicine’s Fremantle’s achievements in recruiting, supporting and graduating students. Recently the first two Aboriginal students graduated from Fremantle and currently 13 Aboriginal students are among the school’s total cohort of 400.

The scholarships will be provided to students commencing study this year. They will receive $10,000 per year, a total of $40,000 over the four-year degree program.

This level of financial support will make a huge difference to the recipients. Our medicine course is intense and these scholarships will greatly reduce the pressure of having to work long hours to make ends meet,” said Professor Alliex.

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized, universities by freoview on December 12, 2018

 

 

The graduation days at Fremantle’s Notre Dame University are very special I believe.

These are the real rite-of-passage days, where students will make the next big step from studying to entering the work force and starting their chosen profession.

There is always a lot of nervous energy and anticipation at the graduation ceremonies, and of course a sense of relief that one has made it.

Congratulations to the hundreds of students who graduate today and tomorrow at NDA. Enjoy it and celebrate!

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE AT NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY

Posted in architecture, city of fremantle, design, education, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on October 13, 2018

 

Fremantle’s Notre Dame University will have a dedicated Design Studio located on the University’s Campus in which students will participate in project-based learning that have social and environmental impact within the City.

Master of Architecture, will begin in Semester One next year with a two-year program open to graduates holding a bachelor degree in architecture, interior architecture or an equivalent qualification.

The program is designed specifically to allow students to work part time in the field while undertaking supervised placements with Notre Dame’s professional partners.

The Master of Architecture will benefit from the distinctive elements of the Notre Dame experience: small class sizes; research-led teaching, high employability through engagement with industry, professional skills development; and ethical, values-driven curriculum.

Many of the key challenges of contemporary society – such as sustainability, housing affordability, ageing-in-place and community building – will underpin the studios within the program.

A second, three-year program, the Master of Architecture (Extended), will be open to high-achieving graduates who hold a bachelor degree in another discipline area such as arts, planning, fine art, design, environmental science, archaeology or history.

Entry to both programs will be based on a portfolio interview.

Unfortunately I could only spend fifteen minutes at the Open Day of Fremantle’s Notre Dame University as I was busy elsewhere, so here a few quick snaps I took.

The theme of the day was books.
