Myall U3A members are gearing up for another great year in 2024.

MYALL University of the Third Age, one of the biggest and most diverse community groups in town, will be reopening for enrolments in its plethora of courses on Tuesday 23 January, 2024.

“Enrolment Day runs 9:30-11:30am at the Tea Gardens Baptist Church, so interested people can pop along and meet our new President Anja Schuette, as well as some of the course convenors for the next year” Myall U3A Publicity Officer Annie Rutter said.

“All are welcome to either join for the first time, or renew your existing membership with us!”

“There’s our traditional Friday Presentations, Art Group, Big Ideas, Card Games, Choir, French, Friends of Film, Garden Club, Music Group, Opera in the Afternoon, Photography, Spanish, Writers Group and Yoga on offer this year, and people can choose as many as they’d like – there’s something for everyone.”

The name ‘University of the Third Age’ is derived from the concept that people move through their first two ‘ages’ of growing up and working, then into the third, ‘Age of Retirement’ – a time when passions can more freely be pursued.

Myall U3A is part of the U3A Network NSW Inc., which consists of over 60 autonomous U3As throughout NSW and several more groups from interstate, each dedicated to providing life-long learning opportunities for their members in their ‘third age’.

The U3A also operates internationally, with the shared goal of providing low-cost intellectual stimulation for people in active retirement, there are no formal entrance requirements, no examinations and the point is to have fun while continuing to learn, and it is self-supporting and run by its members.

“Keep your mind stimulated and stay active in a supportive, friendly environment that will also keep you socially engaged!” Annie added.

“Don’t forget, we love volunteers, and all please feel free to contact us for more information by calling 0431 523 093, or contact our membership officer Donald on, or via the Myall U3A Facebook page – we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!”
