OUR CLASS MIX FOR 2021


Online classes In 2021 we have returned to face-to-face classes in most venues. We also have many active classes employing various Remote Learning methods, e.g. email, discussion groups or Online Classes using Zoom videoconferencing (over 70 classes are still using Zoom). Congratulations to both tutors and members who have embraced the new learning opportunities.

Update 24th September: Under relaxed Qld Government face mask restrictions, masks must be worn at all times in indoor places when standing and outdoors when you cannot maintain social distancing of 1.5m from others. You can remove a mask while seated at indoor venues such as U3A classrooms.
