Notre Dame welcomed 1400 new students to its Fremantle Campus when classes started this week.

A week long orientation program – ‘O’ Week - prior to the beginning of the semester was held commencing with the official welcome by the Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock.

For the first time over 40 local businesses participated in ‘O’ Week setting up stalls throughout the Campus promoting their businesses and various opportunities available in Fremantle for students.

Fremantle Mayor Mr Peter Tagliaferri took the opportunity to tour the Campus and visit the City of Fremantle’s stall where he met the Vice Chancellor and the new President of the Student Association, James Scannell and Deputy President, Nour Huneidi. The Mayor had written to all new students welcoming them to the City of Fremantle and introducing them to some of the services and facilities within the City.

“The University of Notre Dame is an integral part of our port city and the Fremantle way of life and ‘O’ Week is an opportunity for students to learn more about all the wonderful things on offer that may be of assistance while studying,” Mayor Tagliaferri said.

“Students breathe vibrancy and vitality into Fremantle, particularly in the West End, and this was an ideal time to make them feel welcome and a part of our community.”
