Chipping in with gifts of learning
I’m delighted to see our department fulfilling its role as a community leader, including through participation in the Computer Recycling Scheme, which helps schools and students in need.
The department’s donations to this important program began in the late 1990s and continue today. On average we provide more than 1000 pieces of IT equipment each year, including computers and laptops, iPads, monitors, printers, cameras, and miscellaneous consumable items such as printer toner and DVDs.
A new donation went out this week and we hope it will make a profound difference to those who receive it.

Switching to a future focus
Work on the Regency Road to Pym Street project is showing great signs of progress, with a traffic switch this week directing vehicles on to new South Road surface roads.
This is an important move, as it allows work to begin to build structures that will support the Regency Road overpass.
A switch such as this requires extensive planning and, as well as being a job well done, is a great sign of things to come.
Back on the right track
Our On The Right Track Remote team are again travelling to rural and remote South Australia after COVID-19 stopped service delivery in March. A booking system has been introduced for driving lessons and general appointments to help with social distancing to keep community members and staff safe.
The service has been increasing client numbers since 2014, with 580 passing a learner’s permit test, 233 provisional licences issued and approximately 1750 clients registered.
The team continues to provide ongoing support and training for other initiatives such as Gotta Keep Tjitji Safe in Cars, tow straps and school-based learning sessions.
Shining example of quality work
Resurfacing works we recently completed on a 3.8km section of Jubilee Highway (Princes Highway) in Mount Gambier might have proved to be a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Jubilee Highway is a main arterial road through South Australia’s largest regional centre, and the resurfacing works aimed to improve ride quality for road users and preserve the road for years to come.
A photographer who went out to grab a snap of the project arrived at just the right time, capturing this spectacular shot of the road complete with a rainbow.
