The U3A movement in New Zealand is a collection of local U3A organisations who all support the general aims and directions of providing life-long learning opportunities for their members in their ‘third age’ using the skills of their members gained during their ’second age’.

U3A Port Hills was established in 2006 and had been an outstanding success ever since. The group is designed to appeal to those over 55 and there is no upper age limit for membership.

Over 80 people attend our Monthly Meetings and value this meeting and our Interest Groups which vary in size from 4 to 22 members per session.  




Please note that as from 6.00am on Sunday 7 March we  are at Alert Level 1.

 Our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month can continue as normal under Alert Level 1. Members should use prudence in social contact and insure that there presence is recorded on entry.   Interest groups may continue to meet provided that appropriate social distancing is adhered to . If you are in doubt about an interest group that you attend then you should contact your convenor. It is recommended that you keep a diary of your attendances at meetings for the purpose of contact tracing and to use the contact tracing app if it is available to you. If you feel uncomfortable about attending groups then don't feel under any pressure to do so but please let your convenor know. If you are feeling even slightly unwell with cold or 'flu type symptoms then please stay at home!
