Roma U3A to host open day
Time to jump into learning
IT’S never too late to pick up a new skill.
Roma University of the Third Age (U3A) will hold its AGM, orientation day and open day next Tuesday at the Justin King Centre.
The AGM will start at 9.30am, with finger food and tea or coffee provided after the meeting.
There will be displays from some course tutors and also lists of courses on offer for the coming term – so people can come and have a look and potentially sign up for what they are interested in.
The one criteria of the orientation is that all future students become a financial member of Roma U3A ($25/year.)
The U3A has many courses during each term, which lasts for six weeks a quarter and correspond with school holidays.
Everyone is catered for with a variety of courses offered that include arts and crafts, computer club, book club, exercises and water aerobics for seniors, and QATB training in basic resuscitation.
Social outings include morning teas, lunches and short sightseeing trips within the local area.
The university does not tests or exams on any of the courses offered as it is purely to assist people with learning whatever they are interested in.
