Graduation day for Tuggerah lakes Cadets


Eleven students from Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College have been presented with graduation certificates after successfully completing the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program.

Acting Team Manager Inspector Shane Geerin presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at the Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College.

"This is the second time Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College students have participated in the program, students from year nine and ten have been given the valuable lessons about fire behaviour and safety as well as leadership and team work skills."

"These 11 young people have not only learnt valuable lessons about fire safety by completing the program, they have also shown great commitment and team work," Inspector Geerin said.

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

"This program would not be as successful if it wasn't for the dedication and assistance from local NSW RFS staff and volunteers who shared their skills and knowledge with these cadets, as well as the principal, teachers and staff from Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College."

Inspector Geerin 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 11 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 NSW RFS is proud to pass on its traditions to the next generation through the Secondary School Cadet Program, and I congratulate these students on their successful graduation."
