Xmas Lunch 2014

Christmas Lunch
12 December 2014

DITC staff and families were in a celebratory mood as they marked the end of the year with a Christmas lunch organised by the Amenities Club. It was a chance for the team to get together in a jovial atmosphere and to enjoy each others company as they reflected on 2014 as well as the year ahead. We wish them all a safe and relaxing break and look forward to working together again in 2015.

Farewell to three Staff
12 December 2014

It's that time of year again, when along with the merriment and celebration we have to say our sad goodbyes to staff who are leaving DITC. While CAPT Damien Cahill is actually retiring from the service, he is continuing to work as a regional sports coordinator in Queensland. Recently promoted SQLDR Karen Hunter is taking up a much awaited posting in East Timor, while MAJ Matt Knight takes on a regional career advisory role between Adelaide and Darwin. We wish them all the success and happiness they deserve in their new postings.
