Well done JB!

Nuriootpa High School teacher, Mr John Barkley had the surprise of his life last Friday after the announcement he had won a car through The Leader Shop Local competition.

School Principal, Mr Neil White joined The Leader in a “covert mission” to surprise the NHS technology co-ordinator with the news, calling his staff member out of class to “take a look at something” outside.

On rounding the corner, John saw a sparkling new 5-door Holden Spark with the words “Congratulations John Barkley” across the windscreen. 

Applause and laughter soon erupted from the growing gathering of curious onlookers whose exclamations of  “well done JB” echoed around the schoolyard.

John’s puzzled expression changed to a winning smile as he began to realise what had happened.

“I can’t believe it!” said the father of three from Greenock.

“I’m in shock actually….Wow, this is a huge surprise. Often when you enter stuff, you think I’m not going to win anything – and a car, far out!”
