    Hmm i live in QLD and neither a techie or a teacher *runs from crowd* but rather a student that just finished highschool that can't find a **$£ job anywhere (hmm i would of just renamed "New Zealand (NZ) Specific Forums" to "Oceania Specific Forums" instead of making a separate one for Aus since there's only a few of us lurking around, but thats just my two cents.).

    Nice to see edugeek is thinking of the Antipodeans and created an Australian users regional chat forum.

    I must say that I have found edugeek forums to be an invaluable ICT resource for techies working in Australian schools.

    Although I retired as ICT support officer in 3 Adelaide, South Australia schools some time ago I still do voluntary work for each of them and this site heads my early morning must read list.

    I'm based in QLD too, and am both a techie and a teacher (ironically I teach Industrial Skills more than ICT). I hope that this forum gets more aussies on here as it is a great way to share and help!

    I am a techie with a different slant.

    I work for a small firm that focuses on network design, implementation, sales etc etc.

    As a firm we have educational clients and thus the link here to eduGeek. I am personally heavily involved with a large (1300 pupil) College.

    Based in Sydney!

    Cheers for the Aus forum eduGeekers.

    Hello!

    Hey,

    I've been coming to this site for a fair while now. It's a great resource for all those in the IT area, not just those in schools.

    I am an IT Manager at a school here in Brisbane. We have around 1600 students.

    Hi I'm a pom living in Queensland and working as a Network Manager at large P-12 college supporting over 2250 users and over 800 PCs and laptops. I've just bought a blade server and I'm having lots of fun with ESXi.

    I'm another NSWelchman...

    I've worked for an IT company based in Sydney for the past 2 years, and we provide support to approximately a dozen high schools (each with ~1100 kids) and a various number of primary schools.

    I personally cover ~3 schools and mainly do Network/Project Management and Administration...Before that i was on-site support at one of the above mentioned high schools doing on-site support.

    I spent a year working at a school in rural NSW. Was fun. Heading back out to Australia at the end of march. Just getting a 1 yr visa to start, but hopefully will get a Skilled Person visa after that, I pass the points test on the website.

    Not got a job sorted yet for out in aus. Any good agencies I should be looking at?
