Kadina High School RFS Cadets graduate
Published Date: 18 Oct 2011
Fourteen students from Kadina High School have been presented with graduation certificates after successfully completing the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program.
Region North Membership Services Manager Chief Superintendent Lance Rainey congratulated the students, describing them as a credit to their school and the 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," Chief Superintendent Rainey said.
"It is pleasing to see that in its first year the program has been popular at Kadina High School and I am sure we will see the program succeed into the future.
Chief Superintendent Rainey presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at Kadina 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 Kadina High School."
Chief Superintendent Rainey 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 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.
"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."
