ON WEDNESDAY 21ST FEBRUARY, 56 PUPILS FROM YEAR 9 PARTICIPATED IN A CCF TRAINING DAY ON SENNYBRIDGE TRAINING AREA.
The day was cold, but thankfully dry for the cadets, who were eagerly looking forward to put their training into practise. The day comprised of live firing, 1st aid and Fieldcraft. All the cadets fired the cadet GP rifle at 25m, with some outstanding results achieved.
As a background activity’s, the cadets learnt practical 1st aid and how to operate effectively in the field. Lunch was a warming stew provided by the school dining room, but cadets also had an opportunity to cook and more importantly taste the current issue ration packs.
At the end of a tiring but enjoyable day the cadets arrived back in school to complete the post-activity administration, including the all-important weapon cleaning.
