WHITBY WHALER CURRICULUM 2018-2019

The curriculum for 2018/2019 includes the usual diverse range of activities, from those requiring physical exercise, such as walking, keep fit, and line dancing, to more academic activities such as languages, philosophy, monthly lectures and history, one of our most popular groups. A revised version of the curriculum has recently been printed (April 1st), to reflect changes as indicated below.

A summary of all the groups is given in the following Table. Further details of the individual groups including the venues and their leaders can be found by clicking on the title of the relevant group.

CURRICULUM ORGANISER The current Curriculum Organiser Julie Turner has unfortunately had to retire; the new curriculum organiser is Moira Ferguson. The Committee is grateful to Julie for her contribution.

LATEST GROUP NEWS (APRIL 2019)
It is hoped to re-start the Tai Chi group with a new leader. There will be a "taster" session on Tuesday 23 April at St John Ambulance Hall at 4.30pm for 1 hour, and if this is successful classes will take place every week at the same time.

The Guitar Group has been discontinued owning to other commitments of the leader.
