Student Citizenship Awards - 7 October 2015

Last term our school was asked to nominate 2 students for the prestigious Student Citizenship Awards, offered by the SA Branch of the Order of Australia Association. Each year 11 students are chosen from across the state to receive a certificate and medallion from His Excellency, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, the Governor of South Australia, who is also Patron of the Association.

This award recognises the outstanding contributions and leadership of students within their school and wider community. All nominations were assessed against established criteria including contribution to school and the community; leadership and management skills, support for the disadvantaged and the wellbeing of others along with a demonstrated Pride in Australia.

Our nominations were Regan and Joshua and we have great pride in publicly announcing their success with these awards.

Firstly, Regan was selected as one of the top eleven students for the Student Citizenship Award and she attended a special ceremony on Wednesday 7th October at Government House to receive her certificate and medallion from His Excellency, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, the Governor of South Australia. This is an outstanding achievement from a student who has worked with dedication and passion both within our school as an SRC member and the community (especially in the area of Athletic and working with disabled athletes).

Joshua was also recognised by the Adjudication Panel for his enduring contributions to school life and the Barossa community, especially in relation to his involvement with the Nuriootpa Football Club. The panel recommended that he receive a ‘Highly Commended’ Certificate signed by His Excellency and the Chairman of the SA Branch of the Order of Australia Association, Professor John McKellar, AM, ED.

We as a school would like to congratulate both Regan and Joshua for their exemplary contributions to our school and the community. We are immensely proud of their outstanding efforts and no doubt they will continue to be successful members of the Barossa community who will make a difference to the lives of others.
