Compulsory Passing Out Parade and Annual Awards Ceremony
This Friday and next, cadets will be rehearsing for the Year 12 Passing Out Parade. This is a compulsory element of Cadets and we ask all Cadet parents to ensure their sons attend the Parade at 11am on Sunday 6 June in the Centenary Quad. This parade is also the occasion for us to recognise some of the incredible leadership in the Unit with the Annual Cadet Awards Ceremony. Parents are most welcome to come and observe the parade and ceremony.
We are looking forward to a lovely send-off for our Year 12 cadets after five years of service to the Unit. Year 12 parents are encouraged to respond to the invitation by this Sunday for Dining In Night which takes place in the Gymnasium on the evening of Sunday 6 June.
As we say good-bye to our Year 12 leaders, we look to prepare our new leaders in the Promotions Courses running in the first week of the school holidays. The training your sons will get on course is applicable to so many aspects of their lives, both in school and beyond, and I would encourage all to participate whether they are interested in attaining rank or not. Certainly, to be promoted, cadets will need to attend their respective Promotions Course from Monday 21 June – Saturday 26 June at the Winbourne Conference Centre in Mulgoa. Please see the Joining Instruction emailed this week for further information.
