About Us

 

Dee Why School for Seniors was formed as an outreach initiative 40 years ago by the Dee Why Uniting Church.  This was done to counter-act loneliness among seniors in the area. Dee Why School for Seniors is a volunteer educational programme held at St David’s Uniting Church, 3 St David’s Ave Dee Why.

Dee why School for Seniors offers a wide variety of courses and activities such as:

  • Tai Chi (All Levels)
  • Languages
  • Arts and Craft
  • Music
  • History
  • Memoirs/Poetry
  • And many more!

We have 400 members in over 30 classes!

The school gives senior members of our community a welcoming place where new friendships and skills are forged.
