Second Semester

French Beginners Group .... Gerald Thompson

This 22 week course is a simple introduction to the French language or a refresher for those who learnt French some time ago.

It will be the basis for moving into either of the French conversation classes.

The emphasis is on correct pronunciation, simple grammar, oral practise and translation.

Gerald is booked in to run this course weekly from Monday 19th July to the 20th December in the morning at Yilki Church from 10am.

Could anyone interested in the new group please email with your contact details.

Second Semester

 Gardening Group ..... Angela Toone


Angela has a Diploma in Horticulture and did her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2012. 

This will be run at the Cittaslow Community Garden in Goolwa on the first Thursday of each month at 1pm ~ 3pm. 

Starting month will be August.

With the U3A Group I would like to cover some of the basics: soil health, propagation methods, home composting & worm farms, fruit & vegetable growing and generally share my passion for the plant world.  The group members can also decide what gets covered.

We will all have experiences and knowledge to share.

Could anyone interested in the new group please email with your contact details.

Meet Sue ~ our U3A South Coast President for 2021

Sue has been a member of U3A since arriving on the South Coast around 4 years ago, following a move with her husband Julian Moore, from the Adelaide Hills to the much more equitable climate we enjoy.  Finally a happy retiree, Sue joined the French for Fun class as an introuduction to the organisation, and is still there - but says that despite a number of visits to France, her immense struggle with verbs and their tenses remains !

Being an avid gardener with a passion for gardening and growing anything from trees to tomatoes and in between, it was not a difficult decision to start up a Garden Group for U3A, based on the style of one Sue has belonged to for many years in the hills.  The U3A South Coast Group has become so successful (lots of gardeners around) that it now has a waiting list and we are looking for someone to start another group !

Sue is also a volunteer with the Cittaslow Community Garden at Goolwa, where mostly vegetables are grown and are supplied to the local kindy parents and to 'Grow Free' stalls around the town.  She was an active firefighter with CFS for 10 years and during that time had the satisfaction of becoming involved with the Garden Recovery Project that helped many affected householders remake their gardens following the devastation of the Eden Valley and Sampson Flat bushfires.

Sue had worked in a variety of industries and roles before becoming a late starter at University and going on to a career in academia and professional development.  Through this she became an enthusiastic advocate for lifelong learning and the idea of mature learners being given opportunities to enjoy and participate in learning, whatever their age and whether for its own sake, or to achieve specific qualifications, but is should always be fun and it's rarely ever too late.
