report that there was a very high
SACE completion rate of 98% for 2016.
“While the focus is on the students
with high ATAR scores at this time
of the year, it is also important that
we recognise the efforts of the many
students who, through gaining their
SACE, now have a pathway to TAFE
and direct employment as well as
“Supporting all students to be
successful is something that we are
very focussed on at Kapunda High,”

It is time for the State Government to lift
shop trading restrictions currently in place
on Boxing Day.
If we are to be serious about attracting
tourism and especially international tourists,
we need to create an attractive environment
in which to shop.
Interstate retailers such as those on the
Gold Coast, receive good patronage from
visitors and their trading hours are extremely
attractive with late night shoppers.
We have to realise that shopping habits
are changing and businesses have to change
with these demands. If our State Government
wants to receive its fair share of taxation
it must create an environment that allows
businesses to flourish as is the case in most
The Hon Rob Lucas, MLC, Shadow
Treasurer asks why should competitors like
On The Run and Caltex Star Mart outlets be
able to sell bread, milk and a wide range of
supermarket goods after 5 p.m. and yet the
IGA is forced to close?
This is clearly outrageously unfair to small
business operators and prevents them from
potentially creating more jobs at a time when
many people are desperate for work.

40 years of container
On a brighter note, full praise goes to
the South Australian Labor Government of
1975 led by the late Mr Don Dunstan who
introduced legislation to impose a deposit
on the purchase price of a range of beverage
containers and makes available a refund when
the container is returned to a collection point.
Revellers cleaning up after New Year’s
Eve were doing so on the 40th anniversary
of South Australia’s historic container deposit
Now about 80% or 580 million empty
containers, are recycled in South Australia
each year. It is a pity other states have not
followed South Australia’s lead and also
take up this wonderful idea to improve our
