NOTRE DAME GRADUATIONS A RITE OF PASSAGE

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!

LIMITED PARKING ALONG MARINE TERRACE SOUTH

Posted in backpackers, beaches, cars, city of fremantle, local government, parking, Uncategorized by freoview on December 8, 2018

 

Fremantle Council will on Wednesday debate if they should start with time limited and/or paid parking along Marine Terrace in South Fremantle and at South Beach, due to the fact that the parking bays in the area during weekdays are occupied by the cars of commuters, who hop on the CAT bus to Fremantle Station, and by the vehicles of Notre Dame university students and backpackers.

This means that local residents, shoppers and those who want to go to the beach often can’t find short-term parking, so the officers are putting the following recommendation to the elected members:

OFFICER’S RECOMMENDATION Council: 1. Implements a two hour time restriction on the east side of Marine Terrace and the west side of Mews Road with the time restriction applying from Monday to Friday between 8am to 5pm and the parking being unrestricted after these hours and on weekends. 2. Implements a four hour time restriction in the portion of South Beach Car Park 58 north of South Beach Café which faces the beach. 3. Authorise the Chief Executive Officer enter into negotiations with the Department of Transport and Fremantle Sailing Club to implement a four hour time restriction in the Dog Beach Car Park and that these time restrictions apply from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm with the parking being unrestricted after these hours and on weekends. 4. Authorise the Chief Executive Officer to extend the four hour time restriction to other portions of South Beach Car Park 58 and to South Beach Car Park 59 if the current time restrictions are not achieving the goal of ensuring that there is sufficient parking available to beach users. 5. Implements a $3.50 per day fee on the west side of Marine Terrace adjacent to the railway line and the east side of Mews Road south.

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.

This is an early notice for parents who have children in the last Leavers year at high schools that Fremantle’s best in the west Notre Dame University will have an Open Day on Sunday August 19.

The NDA Open Days are always very nice days with lots of information stalls inside campus buildings and also along Mouat Street, and there is live entertainment and food stalls, so make sure to make a note of it in your diary, parents and students!

MARGARET RIVER STUDENTS VISIT FREMANTLE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, education, heritage, roundhouse, Uncategorized, volunteers by freoview on July 27, 2018

 

 

school at Roundhouse

 

The Fremantle Roundhouse was full with students from the Margaret River Primary School this Friday.

150 of them, with teachers and parents, made the day trip to good old Freo to visit the Fremantle Prison, Maritime and Shipwreck museums and the state’s oldest public building the Roundhouse prison.

I helped out with the time ball at 1pm as we were short staffed, but it is a truly delightful volunteer job to talk to people from all over the world and with local and country students about Fremantle’s history.

We are always looking for new volunteers, willing to commit themselves for a day a week or a fortnight.

Did you know that Centrelink does allow this to be a work for the dole occupation and what better one to do! No stress, great and funny colleagues and getting to know all those lovely people from our global village. Come and try it!

THE HORIZON IS THE FUTURE

leavers

 

For these school leavers pondering what to do next in life at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach, the horizon is the future. Only the limitations we set for ourselves prevent us from reaching the great potential we all have.

It is better to fail than not to have tried!

The girls at the PLC-Perth Ladies College are raised the tough way. The wet and cold weather today did not stop them from hopping on the train to Fremantle, where they also visited the historic Roundhouse.

They are looking at the fresh water well here.

NOTRE DAME UNIVERSITY RATED FIRST

Posted in city of fremantle, education, learning, notre dame university, Uncategorized by freoview on May 17, 2018

 

Fremantle and Broome Notre Dame University campuses have excelled for the third year running in a nationwide survey of students commissioned by the Federal Government.

Findings from the combined results for undergraduate 2016 and 2017 Student Experience Survey (SES), announced yesterday, show Notre Dame achieving outstanding results, placing it first in Western Australia in five of six key indicators – ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’, ‘Teaching Quality’, ‘Skills Development’, ‘Learner Engagement’ and ‘Student Support’.

The SES is unique in that it draws feedback from students with the aim of helping students to make informed decisions about future study by enabling them to compare universities across states and disciplines. More than 351,000 students from around Australia responded to the combined 2016 and 2017 SES, including over 4000 students from Notre Dame’s Fremantle, Broome and Sydney Campuses.

Notre Dame also continues to excel nationally, being placed first in Australia for ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’ with a 91.1% rating, well above the national average of 79.3%. It is ranked second nationally for ‘Learner Engagement’ with a 78.6% rating, compared to 64.1% nationally, and ‘Skills Development’ at 90.7% compared to the national average of 81%.

Results from the undergraduate Graduate Outcomes Survey, released in January this year, show Notre Dame rated first in WA for ‘Overall Graduate Satisfaction’, ‘Teaching Scale’, ‘Skills Scale’, ‘Full-time Employment’, ‘Overall Employment’ and ‘Median Salary’.
