Special - Did YOU know?
Check them all because:
Announcements contain information on major upcoming events, and often have attachments and more details;
Weekly Messages contain the information sent out through the email list on Thursdays. All cadets must be signed-up to the email chain and check their emails to keep informed of upcoming events, weekend activities, and any special changes for the upcoming Wednesday; and,
Calendar is updated two months ahead with all cadet activities, timings and locations.
These are all important efforts made by the staff to keep you informed, so all may maximize their experience in cadets by participating in as many activities as possible!
