Back to school for QPSROA members at historic village

MEMBERS of Queensland Public Service Retired Officers' Association recently visited Beenleigh Historic Village where we became schoolchildren again.

The slates of years ago (still useable) and methods of teaching used 50 to 60 years ago were on display, and after all these years, we could still fit into the desks.

Time will tell if today's method of teaching is an improvement on those days.

Special notice to current Public Sector employees - entrance age is now 55, which means you can join while still employed.

Yearly joining fee is $10 (including your partner).

We offer one-day coach trips around South-East Queensland for $50, including two-course lunch, morning tea and coach fare.

Also available yearly is a five-day extended coach trip (in Queensland or interstate) - a good week off.

Come and have some fun.

Contact secretary Betty on 3395 7781 or president John on 3341 8802.
