PASIN CONGRATULATES 2023 BARKER SHIELD AWARD RECIPIENTS

 

Recipients of the annual Barker Shield Awards Program have been congratulated by Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP as the school year comes to an end.

 

The Barker Shield Awards program is intended to acknowledge three top performing students in each participating school. It celebrates excellence in three categories: academic achievement; community service and spirit; and a bespoke category determined by the school.

 

“As Federal Member for Barker, it is a great privilege to be able to formally recognise the valuable contribution of students that are making a difference in their school community and achieving at an eminent level,” Mr Pasin said.

 

The student’s positive contribution is permanently honoured through the perpetual Barker Shield, which is displayed in a prominent location at each school.

 

Across Barker 22 Schools participated in the 2023 Barker Shield program including the Berri Regional Secondary College, Loxton High School and St Francis of Assisi College.

 

“Congratulations to all students for their scholastic and community achievements of 2023, and whether they are continuing study or entering the work force I wish students from all schools across Barker all the best for 2024,” said Mr Pasin.
