Community & Neighbourhood Centres

About Us

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre began in 1981.  It offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich members’ enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.  We aim to be a source of learning that doesn’t cost the earth, that doesn’t need prior knowledge or qualifications, or a large amount of time.  Our courses are non-competitive and informal.  Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more. 

We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle which provides our building under a peppercorn lease, and very substantial funding.

Glyde-In is a non-profit organisation managed by a volunteer Management Committee.

  1. Courses:  Languages, computer/devices, art, philosophy, history, and more
