U3As are voluntary Seniors’ Groups that provide educational, recreational and social programs. Each U3A is organised by and for people who can best be described as being active in retirement or semi-retirement, the third age of our lives.
We are a not-for-profit seniors organisation for fellowship and learning that has been operating for the last 25 years in Sunbury. We are unique in that whilst other club’s senior clubs in our community offer fellowship, we are the only one that offers both learning and fellowship. Furthermore we are probably the largest of Sunbury Senior Clubs in that we currently have in excess of 200 members.
Our financial support is derived from small grants from Hume City Council and Network U3A, but we receive most of our financial assistance from membership fees.
U3A Sunbury was established for people in their third age who are over the age of 50 and are retired or are semi-retired. Our Mission is to provide opportunities for seniors to learn, teach, share and to give mutual support to each other in a friendly and warm environment, regardless of ethnicity, religion, ability or disability.
Our courses cover a wide range of interest areas, from academic to physical and artistic activities. Our members enjoy both the intellectual engagement and the social aspect of our courses.
U3A Sunbury is open to anyone who is retired or no longer working full time. No qualifications are required to join. Our courses are non-competitive, without marks or exams. We focus on enabling members to expand their knowledge in existing areas, and to explore new fields and activities.
U3A Sunbury is about sharing skills and interests and allowing people to enjoy educational, creative, social and leisure activities in a relaxed environment. It is also about having a good time while learning. Our courses cover a wide range of interests. Classes are held in a wide variety of locations, click on the Venue link below for maps and details.
