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.
With the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, in-person classes will commence in Term 1 2021 at the Highvale Retirement Village and the Capital Reserve Pavilion. It is essential that at each class attendance, a U3A member dates and signs a declaration form. Temperatures will be taken and hands are to be sanitised prior to entry. Always carry a mask in case social distancing is not maintained. Some existing online classes have chosen to continue with Zoom. Contact us for details.
