A couple of arty photos I took this morning of the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Market that has been relocated to its old spot next to the brand new modern Fremantle College building.

Redtents events owner Kylie Wheatley now is also the owner of Freo’s favourite market after the school was reluctant to continue with it.

The proximity to Lefroy Road and parking at TAFE opposite the college will no doubt see the market return to its huge popularity soon.

The market is open till midday today and every Sunday from 8am till 12 noon.

Support our local small businesses!

The fabulous GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKET is returning to Lefroy Road this Sunday, after the enforced relocation to Annie Street to accommodate development.

The market will now be under the trees next to the brand new arty Fremantle College building and close to ample of parking at the TAFE site over the road and at the school itself.

It is open from 8am till midday every Sunday and a fantastic community event to catch up with friends while shopping for fresh produce and enjoy yummy breakfast and coffee.

Live music by Ari Davies, Farmer Damian’s animal touch farm, Fairy Sandy and face painting. I’ll see you all there!

FREMANTLE COLLEGE INFORMATION NIGHT TODAY!

Posted in education, fremantle by freoview on April 5, 2016

There is a community meeting on tonight about the planned new Fremantle College, so parents whose children will be going to secondary school in 2018, when the college opens, might want to find out what it is all about and ask questions.

The community meeting is on from 6.15 to 7.30 tonight at the South Fremantle Senior High School at Lefroy Road. It is in the preforming arts main hall and it is signed from the car park.

Here a bit from the Education Department about Fremantle College:

Fremantle’s new flagship college, opening in 2018, will provide your children with a high quality, comprehensive education from the moment they arrive to the time they graduate.

A focus on academic and vocational excellence will provide many options and pathways for your children to work towards their ambitions, whether they aspire to go on to university, further training or employment after they graduate. Whatever directions your children choose, Fremantle College will provide them with the opportunities to achieve the highest possible standards.

With children from Years 7 to 12, Fremantle College will open as an Independent Public School. The foundation principal will be appointed from 2017 and work closely with a new school board to shape the school, its staffing and its learning programs.

The school board will provide strategic direction and governance, with members drawn from diverse backgrounds including community, industry and academia. Their expertise and commitment will establish the college as a pre-eminent school for children in the Fremantle area.

Central to the college’s success will be strategic partnerships forged with the Fremantle community to strengthen children’s access to a wide range of study and career opportunities.

GREAT FUN AT NOTRE DAME UNI WEST END DASH

Posted in fremantle, notre dame university, sport by freoview on March 23, 2016

 

What a lot of fun today’s annual WEST END DASH by Fremantle Notre Dame University students was. It was the best one I have attended so far.

Primary school students from Wembley, on a historic Freo tour with Two Feet and a Heartbeat, were invited to participate and the firies from the Freo FESA station also turned up for the sprint and tug of war.

There were wheelbarrow and chocolate Easter egg races, a sausage sizzle, golf, basketball, tabletennis an footy games. It was a brilliant way of spending one’s lunch hour.

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