Cadet Training 2022

Our recruits are already two thirds of their way through their Induction Year of Cadet Training, and have thus far enjoyed Archery, the Climbing Wall, Cover Drill, Ratel, Camouflage and Concealment, Methods of Movement, Scavenger Hunts, Medics Exercises, Drill Competitions and Swim testing in their Cadet uniform.

Thank you to the SUO and her team in RHQ for their constant planning and commitment in executing the Training Program from week to week. Company spirit is high as we break for the year.


We start 2023 on 3 February and look forward to the annual Golden Boot Competition on 10 February, vying platoon against platoon in military skills and cadet knowledge, in a fun afternoon of inter-company competition.

In subsequent weeks, we will refresh your field skills in preparation for AFX and introduce you to Navigation. AFX will be a camp unlike any you have experienced, and your rank are looking forward to working with you on these skills.

Merry Christmas

A huge thank you to all our rank and staff for their excellent leadership in 2022. Corporals, Sergeants, Warrant Officers, Cadet Under Officers and Directing Staff, I thank you all for your commitment and passion and belief in the vision of this youth development program.

I wish you all a safe and relaxing holiday to give you the energy to hit the ground running in our short lead-up to AFX 2023 at the end of Term 1.

Merry Christmas to everyone in the Unit, to your families, and to the wider Waverley College and St Catherine’s communities.
