U3A Batemans Bay provides affordable learning opportunities and activities to its members using the knowledge, skills and abilities of the members themselves. We cater to people who are no longer working full time but who wish to remain physically, mentally and socially active
No qualifications are required to join and no awards, degrees or diplomas are given. The emphasis is on learning for pleasure in a friendly, supportive and social environment.
Our U3A is run by members for members and relies on the voluntary contribution of skills, knowledge and ideas. Our activities are determined by the interests of the members themselves, and by the willingness of members to lead and coordinate activities.
Payment of the membership fee (a modest $40 pa) entitles members to participate in as many activities as they desire (or can fit in!) at no additional cost (except for those activities where reimbursement of expenses such as tutor travel, photocopying etc may be requested).
Popular activities include:• Book groups and writing groups• Literature and history classes• French and Italian language classes• U3A Singers• Physical activities including dancing• Dinner and film groups• Arts and crafts• Games including mallet sports, cards and mah jong• Current events and Saturday Talks on a range of fascinating topics.
