YEAR 9 CADETS SPENT THE DAY AT CWRT Y GOLLEN LAST WEEK ON THEIR VERY FIRST FIELD DAY.
The whole of the Year 9 spent the day at Cwrt Y Gollen Training Centre on Thursday where they put into practice much of the theory they have been learing in the classroom.
The cadets were split into four groups and rotated around the four different stands over the course of the day. With living firing on the outdoor 25m barrack range, first aid, command tasks and field craft, the cadets had chance to try these skills for the very first time.
With Major Owen running the range, Lt Morrell running first aid, Sqd Ldr Taylor running the command tasks and SSI Bevan running field craft, it was a busy day. The usual delicious range stew had been supplied by the fantastic catering team at Christ College and a hot meal and chocolate always keeps spirits up on cold but bright day.
With many cadets being challenged to push themselves and overcome nerves on the firing range, their hard work in learing their weapon handling drills was evident, and some promising potential shots for future CADSAAM competitions were identified.
To top the day off, Cdt Flt Sergeant Treasure-Jeffreys received her promotion to Cdt Warrant Officer from Sqd Ldr Taylor at the end of the day for exemplary leadership and commitment to the RAF section.
Well done all and a big thank you to Sgt Harris and Flt Sgt Cooper from the Cadet Training Teams and Flt Sgt J Cooper and Capt Johnston for their help in running the various activities.
