Last week at Secondary Assembly, Mr Monin had the privilege of presenting the Australian Defence Forces Long Tan Youth Leadership and Teamwork Award. This
award is given to honour the Australian Soldiers who fought in the battle of Long Tan during the Vietnam War in 1966. The Award provides a fitting
tribute to the veterans of who faithfully served our country all those years ago.
Each year, two students from Covenant are chosen by staff for displaying such characteristics as courage, determination, honour, bravery, teamwork, mateship,
tenacity and leadership. Sometimes they are the easily recognised leaders who are upfront and present in the public eye and at other times, they are
the quiet leaders who serve in the background, caring for others in ways that are unseen.
There were two awards given, one for a Year 10 student and one for a Year 12 student and both come with a generous cheque provided by the ADF.
Many congratulations to the award winners:
- Julia Ryan in Year 10 and
- Elyssa Smith in Year 12
