Environment & Science

This course is designed specifically for those with little or no knowledge in this area, just a desire to travel on an exploration of the universe, its galaxies, planets, moons, stars, constellations and more. The course is held at the tutor's home. Friday
The word “Bon-sai” (often misspelled as bonzai or banzai) is a Japanese term which, literally translated, means “planted in a container”. This art form is derived from an ancient Chinese horticultural practice, part of which was then redeveloped under the influence of Japanese Zen Buddhism. It has been around for well over a thousand years. The ultimate goal of growing a Bonsai is to create a miniaturized but realistic representation of nature in the form of a tree. Bonsai are not genetically dwarfed plants, in fact, any tree species can be used to grow one. The course is held at the tutor's home and the mere nature of the craft requires along term commitment to achieve results. Monday
This 5 week course asks the question “How does the non-human world work? Did you avoid everything to do with science at school, as it was too hard?” In this course there are no exams, but there will be lots of fascinating things to be found, which will enhance the enjoyment of life. It helps if you know how they fit together. In a discussion the word “energy” may be used as a starting point, because it is so central to everything we do. However, this word has various meanings, for example, we pay our “energy bill” or when sometimes run out of “energy” and at other times there is energy in our opinions and speech. This word “energy” could open a discussion in class that moves participants in different directions and expose different opinions. This course is all about cycles and relationships, and where you fit in the scheme of things. Members will view the world with new powers of observation to enjoy the rest of their lives. Thursday
This short course will endeavour to add confidence to members who are interested in becoming aware of what action is necessary when faced with a situation. Members are reminded that this is NOT A Certificate course, it is an Information Course. The presenter will cover areas including: how to deal and dress a wound, how to recognise the symptoms of an on-coming stroke, the proper use of a difibulator and other skills that the participants wish to acquire. There will be plenty of time for questions throughout the course which will be addressed by the presenter. Friday
