WHAT IS A U3A
The University of the Third Age is a mutual aid self-help movement - a modern community of scholars and artists, catering primarily for people in the Third Age of their lives.

OUR AIMS
The overall aim of Beaudesert U3A Inc. is to provide the members with both the stimulus of mental and physical activity and the satisfaction of a continuing contribution to society. It will enable them to take up new interests and to extend old ones. It will offer the joy of learning for the sake of learning: it will open up new horizons for them - unrestricted by the requirements of vocation or the desire for qualifications, and it will do so, principally by drawing upon the extensive life experience, skills and energies of the members.

U3A Monthly Social Luncheon at the Beaudesert Railway Hotel

There were 26 members attending and from all reports the service was prompt, meals were of high quality and reasonable in price.
We were seated in a private area downstairs so the conversation was jovial and inclusive. Nice to see some new members along as well.
Next social lunch will be on the 8th March at the Jimboomba Tavern. We will be trying to organize a tour of the Sikh temple prior to the lunch.

Membership growing after Open Day

Our annual sign-on and Open Day attracted a record 100 visitors, with 30 new members enlisting for various courses. We’re expecting this to increase again as people become aware of our new trivia afternoons, to be held weekly from Wednesday February 6 at Centacare in Petersen street.

In addition, members of the community are involving themselves in the Be Healthy and Active program which is being run across four activities in conjunction with the Scenic Rim Regional Council. Under the program, people are offered FREE attendance for Term 1, 2019, and may then decide if they wish to join U3A and continue with their chosen activity and any other that interests them.

Involved in this program are aqua-aerobics, table tennis, line dancing and two card groups, one at Beaudesert and the second at Kooralbyn (the emphasis with the cards groups being on active minds and community involvement rather than sporting activity!) See our listing on this site for all contact details.
