A Friday Note - 09 February 2018

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

Dear all,

Hot. Thanks to all who work through the tough conditions to serve our customers.


As of midnight on Thursday, February 8  there had been nine fatalities on South Australian roads so far this year.


Congratulations to all of the staff involved in coordinating the extra public transport services for last Sunday’s Big Bash League final.

Extensive early planning was undertaken to support additional public transport for the Strikers earning a home final.

Well done to all of the planners, drivers, PSAs, controllers, supervisory and communications and customer service staff involved.


The APY Lands Maintenance Services contract, which commenced last July, is paying dividends with increased efficiency and especially significant outcomes for local Aboriginal employment. As a result, three Anangu were signed up as apprentices by State Development (DSD) in carpentry, electrical and plumbing.
As Hon Zoe Bettison, Minister for Social Housing, wrote: “The Anangu apprenticeships are a result of DCSI – Housing SA, DPTI and Furnell Plumbing’s commitment to improve Anangu employment outcomes and demonstrate a significant achievement for the remote communities.”


Thanks to everyone who contributed to Andrew McKeegan’s fundraiser last year for the Childhood Cancer Association.

Thanks to you, he raised more than $3,600 for the most worthy cause.
