Kapi-Mana News - - LIFESTYLE -

Mana U3A (Univer­sity of the Third Age) is about to kick off its 2013 sea­son with new cour­ses and sem­i­nars.

Fol­low­ing the success of last year’s sem­i­nar, The His­tory of West­ern Mu­sic, tu­tor Carolyn Rait is launch­ing a course called The Life and Times of In­di­vid­ual Com­posers.

Cli­mate change will be the sub­ject of an­other one­ses­sion sem­i­nar, with Dr David Lowe as the speaker. A three-ses­sion sem­i­nar on the his­tory of Porirua is planned for the end of the year.

Long-es­tab­lished cour­ses in cre­ative writ­ing, trav­ellers’ tales and earth sci­ence will con­tinue to be of­fered.

The U3A pro­vides ed­u­ca­tion de­signed for older peo­ple, and in­cludes four quar­terly meet­ings with a guest speaker in St Mary’s Church Hall, Whitby. Study or in­ter­est groups gen­er­ally meet in pri­vate homes.

Any re­tired res­i­dent of Porirua want­ing to make in­quiries about mem­ber­ship can tele­phone Ross Wil­liamson on 233 1118.
