Last weekend the Christ Church Grammar School Army Cadet Unit deployed to Northam Army Camp for the Term 1 Recruit Induction Course.

During the course, the cadets familiarised themselves with living in the field, working within a Platoon, pack marching, tactical movement by day and night, camouflage and concealment, and operating radios. The exercise was completed in conjunction with St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls and Guildford Grammar Army Cadet Units.

Despite the heat, the new cadets took to the training very well and immersed themselves in the experience. We are encouraged by the enthusiasm of our new Year 10 cohort and the senior cadets who led and trained them. 2023 is going to be an exciting year.
