The Trinity Grammar School Army Cadet Unit, operating in partnership with Meriden school, provides students with a unique Co-curricular activity providing opportunities for students to develop resilience, leadership, and teamwork skills.
Our collaboration with Meriden normalises the experience of working together towards shared goals, an experience common to life beyond School. The School utilises a relationship with the Australian Army Cadet organisation to provide military-like activities at weekly training parades and field activities during the year.
Throughout their time in Cadets, students will learn to lead and take responsibility for each other and follow and respond to the leadership of students. The activity offers a wide variety of training to cater for many interests, including signals and communications, fieldcraft and navigation courses, as well as navigation and survival training.
Progressing in the Unit, cadets can undertake Leadership and Promotions courses to prepare for various positions of responsibility, while options are also in place for those who wish to continue to serve the Unit in a non-leadership capacity.
