  • It’s a pleasure to socialise again

    We ended Term 1 with Easter celebrations and the Social Club will be treating us to coffee and cake in the last week of this term. We’ve had a number of well-attended Four O’clock Forums and in the second week of the upcoming holidays members will enjoy our first ever Christmas in July lunch at the Hub.

    Many of you have already bought your tickets for the Christmas in July lunch, which the Social Committee is hosting on Tuesday 5 July. Please ask at the reception desk for tickets - $40 each. Remember we don’t take cash. You can read more details about the lunch in the Social Committee’s article in this newsletter.


  • From the Course Admin team

    As we come to the end of a very successful, if somewhat chilly, term, there are a few items I want to remind you about and some classes you may like to join from the beginning of Term 3.

    Also, as an example of ageing well, one of our most senior members celebrated her 98th birthday at the end of May, proving U3A is the place to be for healthy, active ageing.


  • Term 3 brings new computer classes to the Hub

    We are pleased to be able to offer more in-person computer classes. A highlight is the beginner sessions for Android phones (22COM301) where you will be able to explore your phone’s basic functions with help at your side. And once you’ve got that worked out, you can continue with Android Smartphones for All (22COM303) where you can explore your phone further. Get in quickly as in-person classes have limited enrolments!


  • Social events in June and July

    The Social Committee is again marking the end of term with light refreshments for members at the Hub. They will be serving coffee and cake on the Monday and Wednesday of the final week. And, during the holidays, the Social Committee will be holding our first Christmas in July lunch.


  • Dumpling making celebrates the life of Qu Yuan

    Dumplings made for dragon boat festival

    Dragon Boat Racing and eating Zongzi are part of the annual festival that celebrates the life of this loyal Chinese courtier from more than 2000 years ago. This year U3A took part in the celebrations when Class Leader Lan Tiet showed members how to make the famous sticky rice dumplings.


  • How Winston chased his dream

    Winston Furlong, film director & producer

    This fascinating story will be shared with us at the August Four O’clock Forum when Winston Furlong speaks about abandoning a successful career as an engineer for the precarious world of independent filmmaking.

    During the session, Winston will talk about his sea change into filmmaking and the many parallels he sees between systems engineering and filmmaking. If you were to ask him, "What’s money for?" he would answer without hesitation, “It’s to make things happen".


  • Pocket the savings

    A reminder to check out the Victorian Government’s current power saving bonus for Concession cardholders, the new power saving bonus for ALL Victorian households and the Dining and Entertainment scheme, which could put money back in your pocket.
