WHETHER it's making a model or playing a game of chess, the more mature in our community are invited to try something new as part of the Launceston School for Seniors summer school program.
Yesterday was the first day of summer school 2013, with seven courses run at the school's High Street location.
Courses will be available through January and February and range from social croquet to mini golf, reflexology and working out how to use your Android smartphone or tablet.
School chairman Barry Lumley said there had been a good turnout and he expected the number of participants to grow over the next few weeks.
"There's two main reasons we run the program - it's important that people see what we offer through the school and can just come along and participate, and the other reason is to break the long holiday from the end of third term to the start of the first," Mr Lumley said.
No registration is required but participants are asked to arrive 15 minutes early.
There is a requested donation of $2 a course.
