Roma U3A to host open day

Time to jump into learn­ing

The Western Star - - NEWS -

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.
