Genealogy Workshops: Held on the 1st Thursday of every month from 10am. Cost $3 at the door. This very popular interactive workshop is gaining great momentum for members looking to enhance their knowledge of family history. This informal group shares ideas, hints and great tips. Gillian and her helpers are anxious to maintain that momentum and continue through the school holidays on the same day and time each month. Next Workshop is May the 3rd.

One to One Sessions: Wednesdays 10 am to 1pm. These very popular sessions will finish for Term 1 after next Wednesday 18th March. They will recommence next term on Wednesday 9th May.

All voice messages are relayed immediately to a Committee Member.

Check out term 2 offerings of courses, workshops, special interest groups, Members Social Days, register early, chat to our Volunteer Tutors, their Helpers and Committee Members and share any ideas you have to enhance your learning experience at SeniorNet H.B.
