  3. Attached is an Activity Notification Form for the Cadet Recruit Training Day. These forms are required by the Australian Army Cadets for record purposes.
  4. Parents are asked to print out a copy, fill in the information on page 1 and return page 1 to myself either by hand or email. Electronic signatures are acceptable. You keep page 2 as it has all the information on times and venue.
  5. I attach a copy of a draft program for the day.
  6. The Senior Cadets will be instructing under supervision of Army Cadet Staff (ACS).
  7. Should your son/daughter still not be in uniform they are asked to present themselves in sports uniform and with a bucket hat.  Please note that uniforms are issued once we receive their enrolment forms.
  8. All food/rations are provided so if we have not been told please advise us if there are any special dietary requirements before the training day.
  9. If you have not had an opportunity we hold a parent information session towards the end of the program which you are welcome to attend.
