Our new recruits surpassed all expectations at their first parade on Friday. I was so impressed with their respect for the uniform, with their engagement in the activities, with their first attempts at drill moves and with their respect for each other and their rank. Congratulations and very well done!
Across the afternoon, there were competitions to encourage all to get to know one other in their sections, platoons and companies. Recruits met their rank and staff, and were issued with their Company patches. All performed admirably in the Company War Cry Competition.
Congratulations, also, to our senior rank as they put into practice their leadership training to lead their Companies and the Command Post so smoothly at their first parade, and to our SNCOs and JNCOs for taking such good care of their new platoons and sections.
Points will be awarded for activities and conduct across the term, and the best platoon at the end of each term will scoop the prize. Points also contribute towards the LTCOL Peter Frost Company Cup and the MAJ F D Marzorini Shield for the Most Efficient Platoon, awarded at the Annual Awards Ceremony at the end of the Cadet Year.
To start us off in the point scores were 2 Platoon, B Company and D Company. Watch this space for the tally from week to week.
