NOTRE DAME UNI ACADEMY AWARD AD

Posted in education, fremantle, learning, notre dame university, western australia by freoview on August 27, 2016

notre dame

 

This very impressive full-page advertisement of Notre Dame University in the West Australian caught my eye this morning, as it looks like the promotion of an Oscar winning movie. The Lunchpack of Notre Dame maybe because the Fremantle uni students can enjoy all the quirky cafes and shops in town?

Notre Dame is no doubt a very popular university in Australia and Fremantle as is shown in the Good Universities Guide of 2017 again.

Notre Dame University received five-star ratings for:

*  Overall quality of education

*  Teaching quality

* Learning engagement

*  Student support

*  Skills development

*  Graduate employment

*  Median graduate salary

I love having Notre Dame in Fremantle as it has significantly revitalised the historic West End of Fremantle, and they are a very nice organisation to deal with, as I know from my own experience with them.

TASHI AND THE MONK TOO GOOD TO MISS

Posted in fremantle by freoview on December 2, 2015

 

 

Tashi and the Monk4 14th Dec

 

There will be a special screening of Tashi and the Monk at Fremantle’s LunaX in Essex Street on December 14 to raise funds for the Jhamtse Gatsal Children’s Community.

The movie is about the special school in the Himalayas that looks after 85 abandoned and neglected children, so well worth viewing and supporting.

Check the details on the poster above.

FACELIFT FOR FREMANTLE BOYS SCHOOL

Posted in city of fremantle, heritage by freoview on January 8, 2015

Boys School

Good to see that heritage conservation works have started on the former Fremantle BOYS SCHOOL at Princess May Park. The City is spending a lot of money on it so let’s hope they will find a new tenant to replace the Film and Television Institute-FTI- which occupied the building for many years. An art film and international films cinema would be nice there.

FANTASTIC FREMANTLE FESTIVAL AHEAD

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle by freoview on September 22, 2014

I had a preview of the program of the 109th FREMANTLE FESTIVAL, which will be running from October 26 to November 9 this year, and it is HUGE and eclectic. There is so much variety and especially a large number of new theatre, dance and music events, that it will be impossible not to find something to anyone’s liking.

Contrary to previous years the Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival is on Sunday October 26 from 12 noon to 7 pm and not on Saturday.

Also on that day is the Blessing of the Fleet starting at 2 pm and the fireworks at 8 pm.

On November 2 we have Jazz in the Park at Samson Park from 5-7 pm, and Classical Encounters in the courtyards, foyers and halls of Notre Dame University between 12-6 pm.

There are many Black Box Theatre events upstairs at the Spare Parts Theatre in an intimate space for just 50 people, so make sure to book your tickets early for that.

There is also a Japanese Film Festival at the Millenium Cinema from October 29 to November 2 and the Fibonacci Centre will have an open day and the Blinco Street Post Industrial Artists Fair.

Of course the always fun Tweed Parade will cycle through the city and the traditional Wardarnji Aboriginal Festival will be held at the Fremantle Arts Centre on November 8 between 12 and 5 pm.

This is a very impressive looking festival program with heaps of art exhibitions, theatre in the suburbs, etc. that will end with the Street Parade and Diwali Street Dance Party on Sunday November 9.

Let the fun begin!!
