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 counteract 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
  • Poetry
  • And many more!

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