“Our aim is to learn new techniques and develop our skills in all forms of art in a friendly environment,” explained Jeanette Hart and Sandy Flinn, Art Group convenors this year.

“We encourage and assist but do not judge or negatively critique individual work, positive, kind, constructive advice is welcomed.”

The Myall U3A also had some linguistic experts offering different levels in French, and Spanish classes with Lidia, a native speaker from Chile, running Beginner and Intermediate classes this year.

“Spanish is growing in popularity. “

“Beginners had fifteen people last year, and we look at both peninsular and South American Spanish, with the subtle nuances between them,” Lidia explained.

Outside, the fabulous Music Group got everyone in the mood by playing their terrific tunes.

“It was a tremendous turn out, the vibe was amazing,” said recent ex-President of Myall U3A, Linda Leggott.

“A big thanks to all the volunteers for helping make this a very successful enrollment day.”

“This gives people the opportunity to follow passions and learn something new, and I want to add that it is an honour to follow in Linda’s (previous President) footsteps,” Anja Schuette, newly-minted President, told NOTA.

The Myall U3A volunteers also thanked Rebecca for providing the morning tea, giving people time to meet in a relaxed environment and interact with course convenors.

“A major ‘thank you’ also to Donald, our membership manager, who did a thorough job briefing and organising the whole successful event on Tuesday!” said Annie Rutter.

It is all shaping up for a great year at Myall U3A, and anyone who couldn’t make it on the day, may still seek enrolment online via

Classes commence in February, with dates and times still being finalised.
