Cadet of the Week – an Equal Tie

Congratulations to our Cadet of the Week – an equal tie between REC Gina Kimpton in 2PL and REC Yannick Hott of 5PL. These recruits were passionately engaged in their lessons and activities on Friday. Not easy at the end of a long week online, so well done to both of you!

Recruit Platoon Competition

7 Platoon is still marginally ahead in the Recruit Platoon competition, although 10 Platoon gave them a good run for their money last week. Our recruits learnt how to keep healthy and hygienic in the field without running water, and I was impressed with how many could quickly access their equipment in the online scavenger hunt.

Learning how to keep clean and healthy with limited resources is a skill for anyone keen on camping, or with ambitions to backpack on a Gap Year, or to trek the Larapinta or the Camino. In a group setting, staying healthy keeps up the morale of both the individual and the group, and means you are fit and able to support your team. We encourage our cadets to constantly look at the bigger picture.

Online Escape Room

Support Company had a great time on Friday enjoying the Online Escape Room, and our recruits will take turns with this activity over the coming weeks.
