"The activities we take part in as cadets range from drill to police scenario role plays and, more importantly, helping the community. Over my 2 years as a cadet, the experiences I have had are unforgettable. From the camps out in the wilderness to the annual cadet competitions and the amazing ‘Trooping the Colour’, it kept getting better year on year."
