This week we were all back in the office. It was lovely to be back on campus and meet some of you again! Our state is doing so well here but let's ensure we all keep up the good work. We have many measures in place in our office to make sure our staff and anyone visiting is as safe as possible. Our office doors will be open from 10am-3pm, Monday to Friday. However we do have restrictions on the number of people allowed in the office and ask you to maintain social distancing practices so we are all kept safe and well. We are so grateful to be back and hope we can continue to enjoy these new freedoms here in SA.
