U3A Wynyard, as the name implies, seeks to offer opportunities for learning to those in their “third age”. In this context, the “first age” encompasses childhood and our early growing years. The second age is the portion of our lives devoted to working and raising families. Almost all of our learners come from the “third age”, although there is no minimum membership age.
Our courses are offered during the day on weekdays, making the U3A most accessible to those who are fully or partially retired. There are no entrance requirements and no upper age limits. We believe that learning is a lifelong experience.
