As we all move to the online learning platform, I would like to encourage our cadets to stay connected and keep checking into their Cadets Google classroom every Friday afternoon. I have set up classrooms for recruits and rank, and will be posting videos each week for inspiration, for support and for training.

The Waverley College Cadet Unit asks all cadets to abide by a code of conduct. The Code of Conduct addresses the following parameters and is something to keep in mind in the current climate:
Online learning requires a new level of trust and maturity. Be honest with yourselves and your teachers.

The current climate will really test this parameter. Persistent work and effort will keep you on top of things, giving you a sense of control.
Due Care and Safety
Take care of yourselves, take care of your families and take care of your community. Pay attention to the current requirements for isolation.
For yourselves, for your family, for your teachers, for your school and for the community. Treat others as you would want to be treated, especially in these difficult times.
Everyone is finding this difficult in different ways. Be kind to one another.
