An Historic Development

The South Australian Government has given us permission under the 1993 Development Act to use the properties we own in 74 Hill Street to develop a new Year 12 Centre and in an adjoining property in Barnard St. an Early Learning Centre.  The first development will be the Year 12 Centre with a target date of completion in 2019.  As you would be aware this is quite critical as two new classes of Year 7s will transit from parish Primary schools into the middle school.
