Cadet of the Week
Congratulations to our equal Cadets of the Week – CPL Isobel Killcross of 1 PL and REC Fox Stapleton of 10 PL!
Isobel was promoted to Senior Corporal after her brilliant performance on the Junior Leaders’ Promotions Course in June, and has been excelling in her leadership with 1 PL throughout this term.
Fox has been consistently working to improve his Cadet knowledge, week after week, and is one of the reasons 10 PL is doing so well in the Platoon Competition.
Well done, Fox and Isobel!
Cadet Uniform Issue for Recruits
A reminder to all parents of Recruits (Year 8) to go online and complete the Cadet Uniform Measurement Form so we can issue your son with his Cadet uniform and equipment as soon as we are back on campus, with minimal handling of clothing.
Thus far, only 30 parents have responded. Could I please ask Year 8 parents to pass this message on, via your social networks, so we can reach everyone in the year group?
Last Cadets for the Term!
Today is our last Friday for Cadet Training this term and what a magnificent effort our rank and recruits have shown us! Every week, at O Group, our Company Commanders report that rapport is getting better and better, knowledge and skills are advancing, in the face of significant hurdles. You are demonstrating the tenacity, fortitude, service and excellence that are the hallmarks of a cadet. And you are getting to know your platoons, your companies and your staff, ready to hit the ground running on the journey to AFX, as soon as we are able.
This week, D Company and 6 Platoon are enjoying their break from the CDC as they compete against each other, and the clock, in the virtual Space Escape Room.
Thank you to Will Whitaker from Media Platoon, for his coverage of B Company activities last week:

Lunge for Legacy
Thus far, the Cadet Unit has raised $2,600 towards the Lunge for Legacy Activity with A Company currently 4th in Australia for funds raised. A big thank you to the A Company Commander, CUO Darcy Ferguson, who leads by example with his individual fundraising efforts! Well done, Darcy!
SPT Company Commander, CUO Hugo Defina-Sperando, is lunging for Australia as he brings his Company to 6th on the National Leaderboard. Fantastic leadership, Hugo.
The activity continues for the rest of September. Please keep logging your lunges and pledges on your teams’ pages for your best chance in the Individual and Company competitions.
Have a Look at Our Progress!
