17 MAY 2023

Our 20th Anniversary celebration was a great success with approximately 180 members and guests attending. Our Deputy President, Hannah Len, opened the evening with a brief address, followed by the Federal Member for Macnamara, Josh Burns and the U3A Network President, Annie Grigg. We then heard from three wonderful Founding members, Lindsay Doig, Heather Wheat and Joan Ashbolt who gave an overview of their work in establishing U3APP in 2003. We cannot thank them enough for their initiative and were delighted they celebrated with us. After the speeches we were serenaded by the U3APP Male Choir, who always provides us with uplifting music, and finally, the door prize raffle draw created some excitement for the winners.

Hannah then cut the celebratory cake, however when it was being carried to the kitchen half of it landed on the floor, adding a memorable bit of laughter to the U3A evening (don’t worry – there was still plenty of cake for everyone!)

The catering was plentiful and beautiful, so thanks to our SpitRoast Caterers, who always provide such wonderful food and service. At 6.30pm there were still plenty of people ready to stay on indicating a good time was being enjoyed by all.

Thanks to everyone who attended and to all who helped make this a happy, successful and memorable 20th Anniversary of U3APP.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
