Rural Fire Service Cadets
The NSW RFS Cadet program provides opportunities for students to gain an insight into fire safety and prevention through the development of important life skills.
The program is facilitated by NSW RFS members and runs for approximately 1-2 hours per week for a Term.
It consists of a number of practical and theoretical activities relating to fire behaviour, bush firefighting equipment, emergency drills and casualty care. The program also aims to develop the qualities of leadership, self-discipline, initiative and teamwork.
Students who are in Years 9 or 10 have the opportunity to be involved in this program.
“The College has a dedicated area set aside for the remembrance of those who gave their lives to protect our way of life. ANZAC Day also looms large on our corporate conscience.
We need to remember. Lest we grow complacent.
We need to guard our history. Lest we grow apathetic.
Our integrity and morality as Australians demands that as educators, our students understand that ANZAC Day is part of the fabric of who we are and what we stand for as Australians. That is the legacy that they will take forward into the future. Education is the first line of defence against ignorance and diffidence and the first best weapon in ensuring that the legacy of the fallen is passed onward to future Australians.
Lest a careless indifference muddy the sacrifice of those who thought our future attitude to be worth the price. Lest we forget.”
Dr Stuart J Quarmby, Foundation Headmaster.
