How We Do It

  • Classes & Attendances
    • It is necessary to be a Member of U3A Cairns in order to regularly attend classes.
      U3A Name Badges must be worn for all classes and activities. Visitor name badges can be collected from the office.
    • Attendance Sheets are to be signed by members. An attendance sheet is a legal document required for insurance cover and must remain at U3A at all times.
    • Convenors will be asking class attendees to advise the name and phone number of their emergency contact person in case of an accident or sickness.
    • As a courtesy to other members and tutors, it is requested that mobile phones are switched off during classes. If expecting an important call, put your phone on vibrate and leave the room to take the call.


  • U3A Library – Are you an avid reader? Are you aware, we have two libraries?
    • The General library is for members to take (or donate) clean books, without a borrowing system. There are plenty of books available at the moment, so check them out.
    • The Reference library (in Kitchen 2) is for borrowing only. Leave your name, membership number and book details in the orange folder.
