I am sure everyone is now back from the Hari Raya break and dying for some news on the 2nd Semester for the U3A program. Well, we have got a lot of changes and updates to the course schedule, which will be posted online and mailed to you by post. We heard your demands and will be introducing new intermediate level courses (e.g. Mandarin, Digital Photography) and continue some of the courses from Semester 1 (e.g. Swimming, Gamelan). Watch out for the new Course List and Course Schedule (version 1.7) on Thursday, 15 September 2011.

In lieu of the changes and updates, we are postponing Semester 2 by a week. Courses will start from 22nd September 2011 onwards and all members can sign-up and register till the end of this month.  Meanwhile, I am uploading the inaugural issue of the ThirdAge Info – a news bulletin published by U3A KL & Selangor.
