LEARNING FOR LIFE: Courses for older adults


Our Manning Valley U3A offers activities for people retired and semi-retired (over the age of 45) and has many interesting courses running in Taree, mainly at the Uniting Church complex.

Next in person enrolments will take place at Manning United Church on Tuesday 18th April 2023 from 10am to 12pm. Followed by our AGM at 1.30pm. Online enrolments will open from Tuesday 18th April to Wednesday 26th April 2023 on the website.

Term 2 for 2023 starts on Monday 1st May running thru to Friday 30th June.

With new topics regularly introduced, and some ‘tried and true’ sessions that have been running weekly for years, there is something for everyone. Courses can be weekly through the term, or for just a few sessions.

Our regular groups include Philosophy, Balance and Bones (exercise specifically designed for seniors), singing, Social

Craft, ukulele, languages (currently French and Italian), walking group, and table games (Mahjong and Scrabble). The movie afternoons have been very popular.

The course ‘Everyone Has a Story’, in abeyance for some years, has also been re-started, with accounts of the lives and passions from a range of very interesting people.

Another popular course is Time Traveller, which combines history and travel stories, and in 2023 will be about the Spanish area of Catalunya.

Proposed Term 2 2023 new courses include Bridge, Pickle ball, Collage art, Formation Dancing, Drawing with coloured pencils, Behind the news, Line Dancing.

Something for everyone! The membership cost for 2023 is $20.
