At the launch of the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership & Teamwork awards in 2006, Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Peter Leahy congratulates students from Buckley Park College in Essendon, Victoria. Their School Principal Tony Tartaro introduces the students to General Leahy.
In 2006 the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership & Teamwork Awards attracted 1750 schools with just under 5000 students receiving awards.
Those students selected as recipients highlighted the manner in which young leaders in years 10, 11 and 12 demonstrate the values of leadership, teamwork and community involvement.
The Australian Government, in partnership with school communities, is dedicated to ensuring that these strong values and community spirit do not go unrecognised.
