Navy and Airforce Cadet News
Each year the Australian Navy holds a training camp for all Navy Cadets in Western Australia. This year the Camp was held at Leeuwin Barracks, with 120 cadets from all over the State attending. Kelvin Hepburn (CH12.2) was appointed as the Cadet Commanding Officer in charge of all attendees, which tested his leadership skills. Kelvin rose to the challenge, and the Camp was regarded by the 'Navy Brass' as being very successful. Well done, Kelvin!
During the holidays, Matthew Weatherald (C12.1) attended a 22 day-long promotional course at RAAF Base Pearce, to obtain the rank of ‘Cadet Under Officer’ in the Australian Air Force Cadets. Subjects covered included Leadership, Instructional Technique, Fieldcraft, Drill & Ceremonial, Service Knowledge and Air Power. Matthew achieved extremely well overall and finished the course as Dux. As a reward for his achievement, Matthew will receive a familiarisation flight in a ‘BEA Hawk 127’ Jet aircraft, courtesy of Number 79 Squadron RAAF. Well done, Matt!
Madison Toovey (CH11.2) and Daniel Buis (C11.1), were both selected to represent Western Australia in the 2020 Triathlon Championship, which will be held in Queensland during March. Congratulations, Madison and Daniel, we wish you all the best for your preparation for the event.
