Belmont High School Cadet Graduation


Eighteen students from Belmont High School have been presented with graduation certificates after successfully completing the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program.

NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons congratulated the students, describing them as a credit to their school and the local community.

 "These 18 young people have not only learnt valuable lessons about fire safety by completing the program, they have also shown great commitment and team work," Commissioner Fitzsimmons said.
"This is the first time Belmont High School students have participated in the program, students from year nine have been given the valuable lessons about fire behaviour and safety as well as leadership skills which will assist student's right through their lives"
Commissioner Fitzsimmons presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at Belmont High School.
"I would like to extend a special thanks to the local NSW RFS staff and volunteers who shared their skills and knowledge with these cadets, as well as the principal, teachers and staff from Belmont High School."
Commissioner Fitzsimmons said more than 3,000 students across the state had successfully completed the NSW RFS Secondary Schools Cadet Program since its launch six years ago.
"Through the Cadet Program, these 18 students have been given an insight into the NSW RFS ideals of community service, dedication and team work, along with the rewards of volunteering.
"The Service is proud to pass on those traditions to the next generation through the Secondary Schools Cadet Program, and I'm pleased to hear many of these graduates intend to build on their new skills by joining their local NSW RFS brigade."
