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 Luncheon

There was a good turnout for the Beaudesert U3A Monthly Luncheon with 31 attending, including some new members for the first time. Meals were of excellent quality and very good service. Probably the best visit here yet. There appeared to be competition amongst some members trying eat the most dessert. No names, Just photos!

Get Savvy

A number of Beaudesert Groups are to extend their Get Savvy activities in an effort to encourage Seniors to keep fit. Beaudesert U3A will be keeping their Croquet, Nordic Walking, Table Tennis, Social Tennis and Computer/Technology Groups open to non-members during the Term Two months of April - June, a nine week period, giving Beaudesert people a chance to participate in physical activities that are not too demanding. Attendance to each class session is $2.00 which also covers insurance. People will be given the opportunity to join U3A additional activities following this trial period.
