The Citizen of the Year Awards are proudly presented by the Australia Day Council of South Australia.
The awards encourage everyone to share a bit about their story, listen to the stories of others and celebrate with our community because we’re all part of the story.
It is with deep sadness that we let you know of the passing of Sr Joan Barry on 10 January, just a few months short of her 100th birthday. Sr Joan was a strong and regular supporter of Mount Carmel College events. Our Dux Award is named in her honour. Sr Joan is a past Principal of the school and was the Principal who opened Mount Carmel Girls School to boys in 1983, for it to become Mount Carmel College. Rest in peace Sr Joan.
