The Cadet Unit is an Adventure Training and Leadership
activity that is undertaken in partnership with Meriden School,
where the girls attend weekly parades at Trinity.

Meriden is included in this activity to help normalise the experience of working together, cooperating and collaborating towards shared goals, as is the situation in after school life. The School utilises a relationship with the Australian Army to access a variety of different military training areas for its field phases activities.

During Cadets students will learn to lead and take responsibility for each other and learn to follow and respond to the leadership of students. The activity offers a wide variety of training to cater for many interests that includes signals, survival courses and first aid courses, navigation and officer training.

In Senior years, students can take courses in Leadership Training to prepare for various positions of responsibility within the unit. Specialist platoons cater to those boys who wish to continue to serve the Unit in a non-leadership capacity but remain within the activity.
