Federation Chamber - Constituency Statements - Bradfield Electorate: Australia Day
Australia Day was very significant in the electorate of Bradfield, as it was around the country. Some eight constituents received a Medal of the Order of Australia, and I want to acknowledge those awards: Reverend Dr Roger Chilton of St Swithun's in Pymble for service to the Anglican Church of Australia and the community, Mr Michael McEwen for service to the community through a range of organisations, Mrs Pamela Walker for service to the Uniting Church in Australia and to pastoral care programs, Mrs Patricia Spooner for service to the community through volunteer roles, Mrs Susan Nurse for service to the Uniting Church in Australia, Ms Tiffany Thomas Kane for service to sport—she was a gold medallist at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games—Mr Yair Miller for service to the community through a range of organisations and to interfaith relations—of course, Mr Miller is a leader in the Jewish community on the upper North Shore and in the Australian Jewish community—and Dr Richard Schloeffel for services to medicine in the field of chronic and infectious disease. So I want to congratulate those Bradfield constituents who were justly recognised in the Australia Day Honours List.
