Seniors Week 2021
We had a fantastic Seniors Week event last week, with more than 100 Seniors attending 20 FREE taster classes over 2 days. We had a great time learning new skills in Dancing, Korean Brush Painting, using Digital Devices, Dru Yoga, Meditation, Guitar, Drawing, playing Bridge, learning Spanish and French and more!
Have a look at a video of the event to see all the fun we had!
We have already started receiving some great feedback about the event:
"With the tutor's guidance, my sketching skill improved a bit. I am happy with my drawing taking into account that this is my first experience in art! Thanks to all staff and tutors at the campus for such a warm welcome."

"The tutelage was excellent. The class material and participation was an excellent introduction to learning Spanish. It was presented in a “fun and practical manner” and the camaraderie in the group was evident even though we had not met some of the other participants before. Thank you for providing this Introduction to Spanish for Seniors."

"The tutor was a real motivated chap. He was always ready to field questions and answer them, and has some real 'hands on' experience for people like us, trying to be part of that fast 'tech world' that is much a part of 'ordinary life'. It was a treat tro attend, and furthermore, it was FREE. Felt honoured to attend and be part of the scene at MCC. I really 'connected' there."
