Live, Learn and Enjoy is the U3A Maitland motto. Universities of the Third Age, or U3As as they are more often called, are voluntary, non-profit organisations which aim to offer people educational and social opportunities operating in a pleasant and supportive setting. U3As are basically self-help groups built on the premise that collectively older people have the skills and knowledge to provide learning opportunities for themselves.
U3A Maitland – CANCELLATION OF CLASSES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Corona virus (COVID-19) has been declared a pandemic.
In the interests of our members safety, the Management Committee of U3A Maitland has decided to exercise our duty of care to our members and suspend classes for the remainder of this semester.
Semester 2 starts on Monday 3rd of August but this date may be compromised depending on isolation rules that may apply at the time. We will let members know the exact date for resumption when we consider it safe to do so.
The age group of our membership falls in to the “most at risk” category for this illness.
Please take care and follow the advice of the professionals regarding personal hygiene and other steps that can be taken to minimise the risk of infection.
