2023 Long Tan Awards

Awards for leadership and innovation

The recipients of the 2023 Long Tan Awards were announced at this week’s St Peter’s Campus Assembly.

Millie Terracini of Year 10 and Sophie Vassallo of Year 12 received the Long Tan Leadership Award, an award that is presented to students in those year groups who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within school and out in the broader community.

Riley Mill (Year 10) and Ari Gilchrist (Year 12) received the ADF Future Innovators Award, which recognises the innovation of students who study subjects in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Both awards honour the legacy of Long Tan and the leadership and sacrifice of all men and women who have given their lives in service to their country. They also acknowledge that leadership is demonstrated each and every day by people in their communities, workplaces and through innovation in learning.

Congratulations to these students on this significant achievement.

Acknowledgement of Country

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”

With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
