Congratulations to Peggy Lucas (Year 12) and Drew Gibson (Year 10) for receiving the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership & Teamwork Award.
This award recognises young people who make a difference in their community by displaying the traits that characterised the Battle of Long Tan, a significant part of Australia's history during the Vietnam War.
From the Long Tan Awards website:
“The ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership and Teamwork Awards started in 2006 to recognise students who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both the school and the broader community…
…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 Youth 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.”
