As you are all aware 2020 has been a challenging year for us all and has certainly had a huge impact on our OSHC Gathering that was planned for March this year.
Over 80 educators and leaders from seven states and territories across Australia were booked in and ready to go for a unique event aimed to inspire and challenge your thinking around delivering a challenging and engaging OSHC program, which was very exciting!
Our last communications stated we were looking at rescheduling for March 2021, in hope that the COVID pandemic would have settled enough for interstate visitors to still feel comfortable to travel to our event.
Unfortunately, with the current climate and outbreaks continuing to occur in Australia our audience have lost confidence in the ability to travel safely, and on top of this we cannot guarantee borders will be open in March 2021.
It is for this reason that we have decided to make the difficult decision to cancel the event.
We have thought long and hard about delivering online and explored how this could look but feel this would impact on the integrity of our initial vision for this event which was to bring like minded individuals together to network, engage in practical hands-on experiences and inspire each other.
We hope you can all respect our decision.
We will be revisiting this idea again in the not-too-distant future as we feel Tasmania is a fantastic location to host such an event, so keep your eyes out for this later in 2021.
