Our St Catherine’s cadets have been busy promoting Cadets as a co-curricular activity to the Year 8 girls this past week. Cadets is still a relatively new phenomenon at the school, and explaining what it is about and the benefits it affords was so well displayed during an activity afternoon on Wednesday.
Planned and executed completely by the cadets, the girls were involved in lessons in Camouflage and Concealment, Cooking Ration Packs, Ratel Battleship and the Obstacle Course and Mine Sweep activities. Each session was run by the rank and their professionalism, confidence and expertise made them excellent ambassadors for the Cadet Unit.
The afternoon was followed up with a Parent Information Evening on Monday with many parents/carers and girls attending, excited to be involved in such a different activity.

Today, we are conducting the first of our Passing Out Parade rehearsals as we prepare to farewell our Year 12 cadets on Sunday, 4 June. The next rehearsal will be on Friday, 2 June.
