Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

FIFTY se­niors turned up for a counter-ter­ror­ism talk in Wan­neroo last month.

The Univer­sity of the Third Age’s (U3A) Wan­neroo branch hosted the April 27 event with guest speaker Cowan MHR and counter-ter­ror­ism ex­pert Anne Aly.

Chairwo­man Stephanie Mitchell said it formed part of the group’s monthly pro­gram de­signed to ed­u­cate and chal­lenge at­ten­dees.

“In the com­fort of the Wan­neroo Re­cre­ation Cen­tre, and with­out the aid of tech­nol­ogy, Dr Aly cap­tured the full at­ten­tion of the au­di­ence,” she said.

“She sat down with the group and en­cour­aged an open dis­cus­sion around cur­rent is­sues and con­cerns.”

The group meets on the sec­ond and last Thurs­day of each month from 1pm.
