Principal's Message

Welcome to Lt. Colonel Barker V.C. School

We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning!

Welcome to our Barker students and families!  My name is Kim MacMillan and I'm honored to be returning for my tenth year as principal of Lt. Colonel Barker V.C. School.  

Lt. Colonel Barker V.C School is a Kindergarten to Grade 5 School with a population of 225 students.  It is located in Dauphin, Manitoba.  Through our school planning efforts, we have set goals to improve student learning in the areas of literacy, numeracy, as well as to enhance student well-being.  We are committed to providing quality education for all learners, a wide variety of activities to support and broaden the interests of all students and, as a staff, to continue to grow and learn professionally.


Our Mission statement is as follows:

“Lt. Colonel Barker V.C. School is a learning environment where we are caring, responsible and respectful citizens.”

As a Barker School family, we continue to prepare our students to become good citizens by following the 3Rs-


* Be Respectful,

* Be Responsible and

* Be Ready.


The Lt. Colonel Barker V.C. School staff encourages family involvement and hopes to build educational partnerships with you. By working together, we can help each child achieve an excellent education in a safe and positive environment. A positive relationship between home and school is a key factor in promoting student learning and ensuring ongoing academic success.​
