U3A Highvale is part of the world-wide Universities of the Third Age movement that began in 1972. The Glen Waverley branch started life at the Highvale Retirement Village in 1996. It is a voluntary, non-profit organisation which offers low-cost, life-long learning opportunities to people over-55.
We are fortunate to have the support of Village management and the use of facilities in the Village compound. In return, we help to combat social isolation and develop social interaction through interesting conversation, courses and physical activities.
Due to COVID-19, public gatherings continue to be restricted at the Highvale Retirement Village. All in-person classes and meetings will be suspended until further notice. You will be informed about the status of face-to-face classes before Term 1 2021 commences on 27 January 2021. However, with social distancing, existing online classes are likely to continue well into 2021. Contact us for details.
