Graduation Parade – May 15

Just a quick reminder that we have our Graduation Parade on May 15. The parade will include award presentations and a small reception afterwards and so it is very important for your cadet to be in attendance. We are also honoured to have Lieutenant Colonel Paul Furlong, the Commanding Officer of the 1st Battalion, the Royal Newfoundland Regiment as our reviewing officer.

The parade is an opportunity for the cadets to proudly show family, friends and their invited guests what they have learned throughout 2017-2018.

Sadly, we will also be saying farewell to Captain Barry Power as our Commanding Officer. While Captain Power is leaving our corps, he will continue to serve the Canadian Forces and our cadets in many new and exciting roles in which he can impart his valuable experience. Captain Power has worked tirelessly as our Commanding Officer and so please join us in saying farewell. Captain Paul Clay is the new Commanding Officer and so there will be a change of command ceremony as part of the parade.

We hope to see you all there.

Range FTX

This upcoming weekend (Apr 13-15) is our final weekend exercise for the year. In partnership with 1 Royal Newfoundland Regiment, we will be at the range in Makinsons where we will be taking part in C7 shooting (cadets silver star and above), .22 shooting (other cadets) and other field training (all cadets). A letter for parents and caregivers can be found below. The exercise promises to be a very exciting weekend and a unique opportunity for all cadets! It is something that very few cadet corps in the province participate in.
