TEGS Turns 10
In 2010 TEGS began celebrating their tenth birthday. Celebrations took place in many forms and different locations starting from the end of the 2010 Adelaide River Festival and culminating with an enormous birthday cake at the 2011 one. Over those 10 years TEGS has had many highlights and challenges. Some staff have been there from the very beginning and remain with us to this day. Others have come and gone, some have even returned.
