Day School 2021


Our day school was held on Zoom on Saturday 12 June 2021 from 10am to 4pm.
Here is the synopsis of the day.

Using Zoom


Zoom is relatively easy to use. If you have not used Zoom before, it is advisable to download the app by clicking here and then clicking on download.  This will open a box saying ‘You have chosen to open Zoominstaller.exe’.  Click open file to install.  If nothing happens, check to see if the zoom file is in your download folder. The app works better than the internet version.
It would also be helpful if you check that you have the latest version of Zoom. If you already have the Zoom desktop client installed, you can check for updates by signing into your Zoom desktop client, clicking your profile initials/picture then click check for Updates.
