During the last term a group of pupils signed up to undertake “The Army Cadet Force (ACF) enrichment experience.”
The pupils were introduced to several ACF activities including drill, first aid, field craft, sports and an introduction to the cadet rifle. This was a new experience for myself, as well as the pupils, and I feel it has gone very well.
One pupil has enrolled at detachment with another expected after Christmas – they will benefit from the cadet experience, which offers personal self-development, team and independence skills, leadership and employer recognised certification and most importantly opportunities to have lots of fun and develop new friendships.
I look forward to running the enrichment with the next intake in the new year and would like to thank Mrs Williams for this opportunity to promote the value of the ACF to HCC pupils. I would also like to thank Brian Moore, owner of Survival Combat Games, for the free loan of overalls and laser tag systems.
