THE UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE (U3A)                          

1st age = schooling; 2nd age = career; 3rd age = retirement


U LOOK, U LISTEN, U LEARN

 

U3A is a worldwide organization which consists of people who come together

to share knowledge, skills and experience in an informal association.

 

Small groups also meet to study and discuss a particular subject under the guidance of a Course leader.

 

At our regular monthly meetings we have very well informed people speaking on a wide variety of subjects.

 

Workshops and group outings are also popular.

 

NO ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS ARE NECESSARY,

                                       AND NO MARKS ARE AWARDED!

 

     AT U3A LEARNING IS A PLEASURE.

 Our General Meetings are normally held on the last Wednesday of each month

in the Lecture Hall of the Emmaüs Centre starting at 10:00 (tea and biscuits) for 10:30.


At each of these meetings we hear from a knowledgeable speaker

on a topic that we expect will be of interest to our members and guests.


During the course of each month we hold a variety of lectures and courses

at various venues (usually at
Emmaüs).

Due to Emmaüs being closed for bi-annual holidays we do not meet
from mid December to mid January
nor from mid June to mid July
for meetings that are normally held at Emmaüs.

We send out a monthly Newsletter (see tab above) to our members showing forthcoming events and courses.

            R  60,00 per single person using email,

      R  65,00 per single person without email
