    "I joined this course to enrich myself and gain better knowledge, as well as to widen my network. Good experience where no book could tell."

    Robert Tan, 61

    "I am clearer about the 4 stages of our life. I know that I am in the 3rd age of my life, a stage of fulfilment. Understanding the social andpsychological aspects of ageing helps me cope with chronological ageing.

    I am now more confident to do more, to share with friends to better manage ageing and to live a full and active life."

    Lily Wong, 63
