During the school holidays, 106 cadets gave a week of their precious holiday time to attend the Waverley College Cadet Promotions Courses, learning valuable skills in leadership, team development, instruction and field skills, in order to lead the Unit in the 2022/2023 Cadet Year.
Successful candidates have been posted to their new positions of responsibility across the Unit, and on Friday we celebrated the promotion of our successful candidates at a special Graduation Ceremony.
Mr Graham Leddie and Dr Julie Townsend were joined by our 2021 Senior Ranks to present the awards and rank slides in front of parents, carers and friends. In an exciting milestone in the Unit’s 110 year history, we are very proud to announce the first female Senior Cadet Under Officer for the Unit, a mark of the successful integration of the partnership of St Catherine’s and Waverley College, which commenced in 2020.
It gives me great pleasure to announce the leadership team for the 2022-23 Cadet Year.
