Long Tan Award

Congratulations to Ashley Conolly (Year 10) and Kat Brian (Class of 2019) who have been presented with ADF Long Tan Leadership and Teamwork Awards. The awards are an initiative by the Australian Government in conjunction with the Australian Defence Force designed to encourage senior students –tomorrow’s leaders – to actively participate in the life of their schools and local communities. The awards were presented in our school assembly.

These awards started in 2006 and recognise students who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both the school and the broader local community. At the same time, they recognise those who display strong values, such as doing one’s best, respect for others and “mateship”, that are integral to Australian society.

Winning students are selected by our school Principal and staff.

Why Long Tan?

The Battle of Long Tan holds a special place in the hearts and minds of Australians. In recognition of one of the defining moments in Australian military history, in August 2006 the then Prime Minister announced that it would be fitting to name the awards the ‘ADF Long Tan Leadership & Teamwork Awards’. It is also a fitting tribute to the Long Tan veterans, as the very traits they demonstrated such as determination, mateship, teamwork, tenacity, compassion and leadership, are the same attributes we hope to encourage and recognise in students.
