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.
Regrettably, due to recent lockdown measures and a spike in COVID-19 cases, all in-person classes and meetings for
Term 3 (13 July to 18 September 2020), will be suspended until further notice. However, about a third of our classes are available online. Contact us for details.
