Defence 2020 Special Indigenous Program

Alice Springs – Friday 4 June 2010
The DEFENCE 2020 team held a special Youth Challenge for Indigenous students at the Chifley Alice Springs Resort, Alice Springs on 4 June 2010. The theme for the day was – COULD YOU BE A MODERN WARRIOR?

Schools from the Alice Springs area and as far as Tennant Creek and even South Australia attended this special DEFENCE 2020 Indigenous Youth Challenge Program. This is part of an important educational program (being rolled out around the country) that focuses on Australia’s future and the part we could all play as informed and responsible citizens.

The students represented their schools and local communities. They engaged with one another in a lively manner throughout the day. This was mostly evident in the exciting and fun role play performances that we witnessed. Well done to the winning students and groups.

The DEFENCE 2020 team wish to congratulate the students that took part in this special program. We also wish to acknowledge and thank the teachers and ADF personnel especially for your invaluable contribution to the day.
