Our AGM and Christmas Luncheon was held at Mary Kehoe Centre on Saturday 1 December and attended by a large and enthusiastic group of our Members.

At the AGM, Life membership was awarded to Robyn Foy and Di Gameson.  Meritorious Service Awards were presented to Claude Miller, Pat Ryan, Maurita Harney and Serena Carmel.

This year’s annual U3APP Christmas Party was held immediately after the U3APP AGM on Saturday 1st December and attended by a record number of members.

Our Christmas Party provides an excellent opportunity each year for members to gather and reflect on the past year, on friendships made and maintained, on new and continued learning experiences, on special events and seminars
enjoyed and much much more.

The party is also an opportunity to share plans, exchange experiences and consider course choices for the year ahead. It was particularly pleasing to see so many of our wonderful tutors in attendance and happy to give of their time. Our new CoM members were also available and made themselves known to the gathering.

This year the hall was full to capacity with standing room only. The new finger food catering worked very well and allowed members to mix more easily.

Thank you to Claire Keech for the early organisation and to Di Gameson and team for providing the “sumptuous” afternoon tea that our U3A does so well.

The Events and Catering teams take this opportunity to wish all of our members and tutors the compliments of the season.

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 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.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • 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.

Via the Office: after bookings have opened
