Summer school with U3A
Keeping your mind active is so important. The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a community self-help organisation, which provides a range of adult education courses and recreational activities for retired and semi-retired people.
U3A Hawthorn is holding its Summer School during the month of January. Classes are free and available for members who have paid their annual registration, so consider joining today.
At Summer School, you can learn about everything from the development of metropolitan Melbourne through to the history of Boeing’s activities in Australia.
For more information about U3A and how you can get involved, see Add knowledge to your years.
