Cadets is an inclusive youth development program designed to develop confidence, resilience and strength of character in our young students. From the beginning of Term 3 Year 8 until the end of Term 1 Year 9, all current Year 8 Waverley students will join the Waverley College Cadet Unit.
To learn more about the cadet program, a Parent Information Evening will be held on Monday, 29 May (Week 6) at 6:30pm in the Performing Arts Centre. As space is limited, please send one parent or carer from each family – students are also welcome to attend.
Please refer to the email sent by the Commanding Officer of the Waverley College Cadet Unit, MAJ(AAC) Julie-Ann de Kantzow.

- Any student who is sick or injured will require a medical certificate explaining their absence.
- Any absence from training also requires parents/carers to process a co-curricular absence form or an email to the Convenor of that activity, Mr Stephen Wilmot, or myself.
