Short Courses

Bright U3A is now running a program of short courses designed so that members can enjoy learning something new but don’t necessarily want to commit to an extended program. These courses may be anything from 2 weeks to 6 weeks.

There has been an extensive list drawn up but the committee will welcome further suggestions.

The program is up and running with the first to kick off being a brief study of Queen Victoria, her life and times, delivered by Dr Yvonne Ward.

The Coordinator of the program is Kevin Hancock. If you wish to put your name down for any courses please contact him by email kevin.hancock@y7mail.com or by phone 0438 784 968

Tai Chi is on the list of possible courses to be run, however Bright U3A is looking for a member who may wish to deliver this. It is envisaged that this would be extended to run throughout the year.

As a special event Bright U3A will host Dementia Australia Counsellor Liz Grogan who will be guest speaker at the next coffee morning on 5th April and in the afternoon will run a session using virtual reality technology to explore what it is for someone living with dementia. This event is currently fully booked – there are only 10 units available, however if there are enough members who would like to use this technology U3A will book another session with Dementia Australia.

If you are interested please email Helen Brecknell   jhcw@bigpond.com so that we can gauge numbers.
