Greetings, my name is Tom Kingston!
I moved to Port Sorell with my partner Jenny a couple of years ago from Burnie where we had moved from Victoria five years before that. Hence, although I lived in Victoria all my life, Jenny and I decided, because of the looming climate crisis, to move to Tasmania.
In terms of my professional life, apart from my years before I began school and a later two year stint in retail in my late teenage years, I have spent my life in education, primary, secondary, tertiary and post tertiary.
I have been interested in U3A for quite a while now and more especially because there is no NAPLAN or any other form of assessment required. You can actually turn up and enjoy yourself without the threat of a report card. I hope to contribute in some way for Port Sorell U3A.
Our families are all back in Victoria which means, or at least did mean before COVID 19, regular trips to ‘grandparents days’ and the like. We look forward to doing this again in the not too distant future.
