Chatham High School cadets graduate


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

NSW RFS Superintendent Kam Baker congratulated the students, describing them as outstanding representatives of their school and their local community.

"These 14 young people have not only learnt valuable lessons about fire safety by completing the program, they have also shown great commitment and team work," Superintendent Baker said.

"It is pleasing to see that in its second year the program continues to be popular here at the Chatham High School and I am sure we will see the program succeed into the future."

Superintendent Baker presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at Chatham High School in Taree.

Superintendent Baker said more than 3,900 students across the state had successfully completed the NSW RFS Secondary Schools Cadet Program since its launch seven years ago.

"These 14 students have been given an insight into the NSW RFS ideals of community service, dedication and team work, along with the rewards of volunteering, and I'm pleased to hear many of these graduates intend to build on their new skills by joining their local brigade."

"I would like to extend a special thanks to the local NSW RFS staff and volunteers as well as the staff from Chatham High School who continue to share their skills and knowledge with these cadets," Superintendent Baker said.
