The Joy of Dance
If you love to dance, then Classical Dance Studio (CDS) is the place for you. Catering from ages 3 years to young adult, styles taught include Classical Ballet, Spanish and Contemporary. For the more serious student, the opportunity to take internationally-recognised ballet examinations is offered annually. Exams are not for everyone, however, and CDS welcomes students who wish to take classes for pure enjoyment.
With an emphasis on building self-esteem and confidence while developing strong technique and artistry, CDS has been nurturing young dancers for over 20 years. The beautifully appointed main studio is located in O’Connor, with a branch in South Lake. For more information, head to

Come and learn Italian – language of romance. The Dante Alighieri Society of WA invites you be part of the learning program at the oldest and most reputable school of Italian in WA.
Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321) was an Italian poet par excellence. He was also a prose writer, literary theorist, moral philosopher, political thinker and one of the great figures in world literature. His central work, the Divina Commedia, or Divine Comedy – is considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature.
A group of Italian intellectuals founded the Dante Alighieri Society in 1889. The aim of the Society was to protect and foster Italian language and culture throughout the world. A branch of the Society was founded in Perth in 1954, obtaining full support and recognition by the Italian Government. Enrolments are being taken on Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd February from 7.30pm-9pm for classes commencing 6th February 2017.

North Lake – your choice for Year 11 & 12
Every year students make the choice to come to North Lake Senior Campus for Year 11 or 12. They come not only from all around the metro area and country WA but from all over the world – at last count there were students from 51 different countries.
At North Lake, students find a school where the courses are the same as elsewhere, but things are done differently. There are no bells, students are treated as adults and the campus is small and peaceful – except maybe when there’s a band playing at lunchtime!
Students at North Lake may choose to follow ATAR or general pathways to uni, TAFE or employment. The campus also runs highly successful specialist courses in Hospitality, Industrial Studies and Digital Games & Simulations that lead to apprenticeships, traineeships, jobs or further study. Mature age students are welcome and part-time study options are available.
As one of the students put it: “North Lake takes the drama out of Year 11 and 12.”
Fremantle Fast Track, located in central Fremantle, enjoys great success working with students who require Year 10 equivalence or a pathway to employment.
Call 9314 0444 or message the campus via Facebook to book an interview.
