U3A as we are generally known today, arrived in Australia in the mid 1980's and there are now branches in most states and thousands of people are involved.
In metropolitan and country South Australia there are currently nineteen branches. Each branch operates autonomously, programs offered are wide-ranging, and fees vary.
Our particular branch, formed in 1987, is small and friendly and meets on Fridays in school term time. Our activities include Tai Chi, French, Play Reading, Poetry Appreciation, Book Club, and Scrabble, as well as a weekly afternoon session with guest or branch member speaking on a variety of interesting topics.
