Technology in the Tropics 2021 – Together Again: Face to Face
3 September, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pmFree
Regretably this event has been cancelled.
We have held out hope that we could navigate through these Covid times, but unfortunately Covid has had the last word. With recent lockdowns well-advertised in Melbourne, ACT, NT, NSW, Brisbane and Cairns; we have had to very seriously consider if the 3rd of September would be at all possible.
Cairns’ people are still wearing masks until Sunday when a review will be taken. The Premier may lift the restrictions but can then reimpose them at any time. There is now too much uncertainty around what tomorrow (let alone 2 weeks’ time) might be like.
This uncertainty and Covid fear have had a predictable flow on effect to the number of registrations that we have received as well.
QSITE (Far North Queensland Chapter) once again promises a not-to-be-missed professional development opportunity for FNQ educators. This pupil free day program will provide vital information on current and focused activities in schools and provide stimulating workshops presented by a talented range of speakers.
