The ADF Long Tan Leadership and Teamwork Awards recognise students who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both the school and the broader community and who display strong values, such as doing one’s best, respect for others and “mateship”, that are integral to Australian society. The awards are an important initiative of the Australian Government designed to encourage senior students, tomorrow’s leaders, to actively participate in the life of their schools and local communities.
