SA/NT Chapter – Let’s Talk Systems: Using technology to streamline operations, replace spreadsheets and work smarter!

Join us on Thursday 18th July for our first Special Interest Group (SIG) focussed on Systems. We will be providing the opportunity via a workshop-style presentation and roundtable group discussions for you to learn from and talk with other Educate Plus members about what systems their school uses, what works (and what doesn’t work) and how you might be able to leverage technology to reduce manual or time-consuming tasks.

The event will include a case study and presentation from Joanna Arvanitis, Project and Systems Manager, King’s Baptist Grammar School on how you can increase the value from your enrolments, database and marketing systems – and tackle the day-to-day grind of administrative tasks. Following the presentation, you will have the opportunity to connect with other attendees via roundtable group discussions and workshop any questions you might have.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Enrolments Systems (E.g. systems you might use for school tour bookings, receiving enrolment applications, managing waitlists, managing leads and enquiries etc)
  • Student Information Systems (E.g. systems you might use to update and maintain student records, staff records, manage and track volunteers, track donations, manage and track alumni etc)
  • Marketing and Communications Systems (E.g. systems you might use to communicate with parents/caregivers, distribute newsletters, track photo consent, monitor marketing campaigns etc)

If there is a burning issue you’d like discussed, please forward to events@educateplus.org. Otherwise just come along ready to discuss issues of interest with colleagues.
