Building upgrade and Redevelopments

I am delighted and proud  to advise that after making  what has been described to me as ‘consistent, compelling and persistent’ representations to our department Le Fevre High is one of 5 schools to have been identified in the State 2015-2016 budget to receive monies towards a building redevelopment. I was delighted to receive a phone call from local member for Lee the Hon Steve Mullighan MP Minister for Infrastructure and Transport on Thursday 18th June advising me of this outcome. The next day I heard from our Minister for Education and member for Port Adelaide the Hon Dr Susan Close MP. Please see an extract of her letter to me below:

Dear Mr Shepherd

 As part of the 2015/16 State Budget, I am pleased to advise your school is one of the five schools to be allocated capital funds for major works.

 This project is part of a $50 million Schools and Preschools Capital Works stimulus package designed to generate local employment following the closure of the automotive industry.

 This will involve an upgrade and refurbishment of your facilities.

 The other four schools to receive an allocation of funds under the Capital Works stimulus package are:

  • Christies Beach High School and South Vocational College Disability Unit
  • Christies Downs Primary School
  • Fremont-Elizabeth City High School
  • Swallowcliffe School P-7


There will be a meeting very soon with DECD representatives to begin the planning of this development as it will occur within the 2015-2016 financial year.  I will keep you informed of the details as they come to hand. I gratefully acknowledge the considerable support of our Governing Council and our Executive team in supporting my endeavours for this upgrade over several years!
