QuickSmart Workshop/Reports/Office Updates – 22 February 2022

2022 Workshop Calendar

Following the postponement and rescheduling of some of our 2022 workshops, we are happy to announce that new dates and formats have been confirmed and are available on our revised calendar: https://simerr.une.edu.au/quicksmart/workshop-calendar/

All our Workshop Ones will be run online via Zoom. Workshops that were previously face-to-face have been combined to form new training groups with new dates.

Individual schools will be contacted with all necessary details soon, but if you have any questions regarding your training, please do not hesitate to call 02 6773 5065 or email quicksmart@une.edu.au.

2021 School Reports

Due to technical issues, there was a delay in sending requested reports to schools in late 2021. The issues have now thankfully been resolved and the reports have started to be analysed and sent to schools.

If you require your report sooner rather than later, please call 02 6773 5065 or email quicksmart@une.edu.au to let us know so we can prioritise your report request.

New SiMERR office location

SiMERR/QuickSmart staff members started working from home in July 2021 and were set to return to the office in the School of Education at the University of New England in early December. However, the building was severely damaged in a supercell event in October, and alternative workspaces needed to be sourced.

UNE teams worked tirelessly to address this issue and, over the past week, most SiMERR staff members moved into previously-vacant offices in UNE’s School of Business, and are now in the same physical workspace since last July!

The past few months have been slightly chaotic, and we have very much appreciated the patience and understanding of all the QuickSmart schools and instructors regarding delays in workshop correspondence, school reports and phone call-backs, as well as other issues beyond our control.

Thankfully, we are now in a more settled working environment; just in time for our 2022 workshops which start next week! Thank you to all our wonderful QuickSmart schools for their continued support.
