Lake Munmorah High School RFS Cadets graduate
Published Date: 16 Aug 2011
Fourteen students from Lake Munmorah High have been presented with graduation certificates after successfully completing the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program.
Assistant Commissioner Keith Harrap presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at Lake Munmorah High School.
"This is the second time Lake Munmorah 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 and team work skills.
"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," Assistant Commissioner Harrap said.
"This program would not be as successful once again 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 Lake Munmorah High."
NSW RFS Assistant Commissioner Harrap congratulated the students, describing them as a credit to their school and the local community.
"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".
Assistant Commissioner Harrap 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.
"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."
