Cadets over the past couple of weeks have been taking turns by Companies to extend their skills across a number of areas:

  • Navigation through a scavenger hunt in Queens Park
  • A RATEL exercise to consolidate Radio Communication
  • Rock Climbing at the Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym

I think you can see from the accompanying photos how well they have been doing!

For the next two weeks, we will be concentrating on the Passing Out Parade as we prepare to farewell our Year 12s, and we ask our cadets to make sure their uniforms are looking particularly good for these rehearsals.

Our CAS Drill Team has been busy rehearsing from week to week in preparation for the CAS Drill Competition to be held at Knox Grammar School on Wednesday 2 June. We wish them all the best under the command of CUO Bryn Parry as they consolidate their orders.

This is the final term in the Cadet Year, and as we say good-bye to our current leaders, we are preparing the program to develop our new leaders on the Promotions Courses in the first week of the school holidays. To become a Corporal, Sergeant, Warrant Officer or Cadet Under Officer, cadets are invited to attend this excellent leadership training from Monday 21 June – Saturday 26 June at the Winbourne Conference Centre in Mulgoa. Keep an eye on your emails for further information.
