Cancellation of Term 3 and Term 4, 2021 Classes

Given the current Covid situation in NSW, the Southlakes U3A committee has decided to cancel all classes for the rest of 2021.

After the terrible Covid impact on our 2020 program, we commenced this year with great hope that despite us having to live with Covid,  we would be able to run the entire 2021 classes and activities. Unfortunately, the resurgence Covid, the Delta variant in particular, and its impact across NSW, and the nation, has proved hard to combat. Thankfully, with vaccines now available, there is a pathway forward to minimise such future catastrophic impacts but it is envisaged that it will still take some months to transition towards a "new norm". 

Hopefully by 2022 we will have settled into the "new norm" and be able to run a full 2022 program of classes and activities. In the meantime there are some classes using Zoom and also a range  of online courses available to members

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the President, Steve Morton, or a committee member.

Back in Touch – Volume 12

The President’s Pen Last Monday was deemed “Freedom Day” for many NSW folks and a return to wintery weather was the only thing that curtailed some of the lockdown release.

Covid has thrown a huge wrench (not just a spanner) in everyone’s works. No one was immune from its impacts. Covid is here to stay so let’s all accept it and take the necessary ...

Back in Touch – Volume 11

Back in Touch - Volume 11, October 4 The President's Pen A year of ups and downs is in its last quarter, and I am hopeful we can finish on a high.  Things are at least looking rosier in NSW and with that will come the urge for everyone to get out, spread their wings and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather. To better protect ourselves, and stay healthier, let’s all do this in a measured way.  ~ Steve Morton Why Seniors Don't Change Passwords WINDOWS: Please enter your new password.

Back in Touch – Volume 10

Back in Touch - Volume 10, September 21 The President's Pen Just in case you had not realised but Christmas is less than 100 days away. While just getting together as a family to celebrate this wonderous time of the year will bring the greatest joy to all of us, choosing a present may be more of a challenge. From what I read and hear, Covid has negatively impacted many supply chains globally. In view of this, it may be a good time to start organising those little Xmas treasurers for your loved ones, particularly members in the younger generation ...

I joined U3A as recommended by my friend Ross Bennett so I could get past the myths regarding Windows 10. The Course run by Elena was really comprehensive and covered most aspects of the program. Elena demonstrated infinite patience and attention to detail and I feel my time was well spent throughout the course. Much appreciation to Elena and U3A.
