2018 Group Fitness Challenge – win a free entry

It’s back, better and bigger than before! Are you ready to accept the 2018 helloworld Group Fitness Challenge, on your path to wellness?

What is it?
Your goal is to attend 100 group fitness classes at the UC RecCentre in 8 months (or 217 days to be exact, if you sign up from the get go).   If you haven’t done the math already, it’s 3-4 classes per week, a nice healthy amount of exercise to keep you happy and healthy. We have separate prize categories for those reaching 100 classes and for those reaching 50-100 classes.  There are plenty of spot prizes along the way too, as well as encouragement and rewards for attaining milestones.  In all, we have $1000 in travel vouchers from helloworld Fendalton, and a further $500+ in spot prizes along the way. 

What’s the investment?
Can you really put a price on your health and wellbeing?  Yes, yes you can.  For the tiny sum of $15 (or $10 for earlybird sign ups), you get a wee training booklet to collect your stamps each time you attend a class, and within that booklet around $25 worth of discounts and freebies.

How do I sign up?
Glad you asked. You’ll need to visit the RecCentre and sign up at the counter.  We’ll have a short registration form for you to fill in, you’ll need to give us your monies, and then we’ll issue you your class training diary.  We’ll start taking registrations from Thursday 15 March, and bonus, if you sign up between 15 March and Sunday 18 March, you can get yours for just $10! The challenge starts on Monday 19 March… keep your booklet in your gym bag and collect those stamps at every class.

Win a free entry!
We’re giving you loads of ways to win your registration for free.  First up, attend our Zumba Masterclass on Thursday 15 March at 6.10pm.  We’re giving away five free registrations on the night.  Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Zumba master, as they say, there are no mistakes in Zumba, just accidental solos! We’ll also be selecting two lucky people who register before Monday 19 March to win their registration back. Make sure you follow our facebook page as well, because we’ll be sure to give some away there too…

For more information, check out our website, we have a whole page dedicated to the 2018 helloworld Group Fitness Challenge (or you can ask our instructors and reception team).

See you soon at the RecCentre.

UCSA Staff of the Year Award 2017

Staff of the Year Award 2017 nominating/voting has opened!

Since 1995, the UCSA Lecturer of the Year Awards give students a voice in nominating and deciding the most inspiring and dedicated lecturers at UC.  In recent years, we have introduced nominations for Supervisor of the Year, Administrator of the Year and Great Character of the Year.

Last year we renamed the event Staff of the Year Award, and added a few more awards because we want to honour the help and support non-academic staff members give students as well.

For your enjoyment, there’s still a “Make-up Your Own” Lecturer Award, where you name the award and nominate the lecturer.  It’s fun.  Plus, the cheekiest ones will be featured at the award ceremony.

So start nominating your lecturers, supervisors and technical staff who have helped you, library staff who showed you where books are, advisors who have guided you, or cleaning staff who have made your life at uni so much better!

Don’t forget, by nominating a staff member you go in the draw to win one of four $50 UCSA Cafe and Bar vouchers!
