Manning Valley University of the Third Age (U3A) announces its fourth term course enrolment morning on Monday, October 15 from 9.30am to 11am at the Uniting Church, Albert Street, Taree. 

Most classes commence on October 22.

U3A is part of a non-profit worldwide movement founded on the idea that semi-retired and retired people can use their leisure time to teach and learn together.

It offers a broad range of courses, such as art, ballroom dancing and ‘boot scooting’, exercise and tai chi, music making, ukulele, the Manning’s renowned Silver Tones choir, philosophy and discussion group, poetry and play reading, cards and table games, craft, film appreciation, Spanish conversation  and other beneficial learning and social experiences. There are courses running almost every day of the week.

New to this term are talks by Fair Trading about scams, buying a car and hiring a tradie; a collector’s club day and Time Traveller, exploring the history and culture of Russia.

Courses usually run for eight or nine weeks, with no formal qualifications or assessments applying. A small yearly membership fee is charged and nominal course fees to cover costs apply to most courses.

“We continue to enrich our members’ lives by providing interesting and beneficial activities,” president Lina Ingram said. 

“What better way to keep your mind busy than our ‘Learning for Life’ courses and social activities. Come visit us and be welcomed Into our family.”
