2020 Course Status. Updated November

Your committee is actively working on a new course list for 2021 and this will be made available in early January. During this COVID-19 period we were able to continue some classes although some were not possible due to the government restrictions but 2021 is looking really promising. Please hang in there!

Italiano per Piacere has come out of hibernation and will be meeting each Wednesday at the Nambucca Heads Golf Club where we can maintain social distancing and other COVID regulations. Sessions restarted Wednesday 2nd September.

An on line course in Art Appreciation is available to all U3A members. The course focuses on “Australian Art and Social History” and is a chronological journey through the Art of Australia. The works of famous and not so famous Australian Artists are discussed in each “mail out” alongside attached images of a selection of their paintings. There is opportunity for participation by members who would like to contribute their opinions on artists or on their works. There are mail outs once every two weeks.

If you would to join this class or would like a ‘taster session’ please contact Marlene Griffin preferably by email. Marlene’s contact details are available in the January 2020 Course List that was mailed to all members; if you do not have this please contact U3A ([email protected]).

Resumption of Classes
With the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, your Nambucca Valley U3A committee, in conjunction with our course leaders, is in a position to start to plan the resumption of classes for the remainder of 2020. It will not be possible to hold an Open Day for the second semester towards the end of July; government restrictions will not permit such a large gathering at that time so any plans for an official start to the second semester remain on hold. However there will be some classes resuming as we inch forward.

Click here to see the current course status which shows the unfinished or continuing courses from the first semester. The list indicates where we are at in the process of establishing which courses are able to resume. This document will be updated on a regular basis as changes occur.

Thanks for your perseverance.

  1. I am interested in learning more about u3A , how it operates. And becoming a member. Please contact me via my email listed below.

    • Hello Trish, and thanks for your interest.

      I have forwarded your enquiry to a committee member and asked them to reply. For now I can point you to a couple of our web pages that might answer some of your questions, both of which can be accessed from the menu bar at the top of the page.

      For a start I would have a look at About U3A Nambucca Valley page which gives an insight into U3A generally, a bit about Australia, and more specifically to our organisation here in the Nambucca Valley. There are other links from that page but you might also want to have a look at the General Information page. We have members who live in an area roughly bounded by Urunga in the north, Bellingen in the west and Scotts Head in the south but we are generally centred around Nambucca Heads and Macksville. Right now we are in a bit of a hiatus due to COVID but we are able to offer a handful of activities – click on the Course and Events tab part way down the home page.

      Looking forward to having you join as a member.
