RETIREES can go back to school to learn more thanks to efforts by volunteers and tutors at University of the Third Age. 

More than 100 subjects are offered every year for life long learners, including the study of history, foreign languages, music and more.

A U3A spokesperson said the school catered for more than 1700 people in the Redlands alone, with the organisation set up in France more than four decades ago to help older people access learning opportunities.

Educators who help teach U3A students have been thanked at an annual tutors and volunteers forum, which was held earlier this month in Cleveland.

About 60 attended the forum to hear Cleveland District State High School principal Paul Bancroft talk about education..

“He spoke on Education- Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” the spokesperson said. 

“Changes in education and provision of flexible learning environments assist in preparing students for service in the community and life long learning.

U3A Redlands president Julie Porteous thanked all volunteers and tutors for their contributions.
