Message from the Chief Executive
National Reconciliation Week
It was a privilege for me to join representatives from around the agency at the National Reconciliation Week launch breakfast at the Adelaide Convention Centre yesterday morning. The breakfast, launching the week with its theme More than a Word - Reconciliation Takes Action, was attended by almost 1700 people.
National Reconciliation Week, which runs through until Thursday 3 June, is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared history, understand the impact of European colonisation and explore what action each of us can take to contribute to reconciliation.
We are a long-term supporter of National Reconciliation Week and of the pursuit of reconciliation. We continue to pursue its objectives through our staff cultural awareness programs, support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within the Department, and through our new Reconciliation Action Plan, or RAP.

Wrapped with artwork
An important and very attractive way in which we acknowledge and celebrate our First Nations is via the Kardi Munaintya (Emu Dreaming) tram which has been running since 2018, featuring artwork designed by former DIT employee Paul Herzich.
Paul also designed spectacular building wraps, organised and funded by the On The Right Track team, at the three locations below. The wraps include art styles from communities and colours found in their local landscape. To raise awareness of Aboriginal groups within our state, the installations also name all 39 main Aboriginal language groups of South Australia.
Granite Island causeway
A milestone has been reached with the installation of the first deck (pictured below) of the new Granite Island Causeway.
A progressive construction system has a lead crane driving the piles for a second crane to install sections of precast deck and so on.
A total of 82 steel piles and 82 concrete decks will be installed, with the project expected to be completed by the end of 2021. Our Infrastructure website provides the project’s background information as well as rolling updates on progress.
E is for Enjoyment
Eurovision returned to our TV screens this year following a COVID-19 hiatus, and with it came the return of SAPTA’s Eurovision lunch.
One of SAPTA’s social highlights, everyone draws a country from a hat and then brings a plate of food representing the corresponding national cuisine.
As you know, E, for Eurovision, is also a major element of our CHEER values. Whatever you think of the music, Thursday’s lunch was Enjoyed by all. Italy’s winning act … a matter of individual taste.
Today’s Friday Flashback shows West Croydon Railway Station soon after it opened in 1915.
