Wee Waa High School Rural Fire Service Cadets Graduate
Published Date: 23 Nov 2011
Seven students from Wee Waa High School have been presented with graduation certificates after successfully completing the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) Secondary Schools Cadet Program today.
NSW RFS Inspector Brett Loughlin congratulated the students, describing them as a credit to their school and the local community.
"These 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 Loughlin.
"This is the second year that Wee Waa High has conducted the program and it's great to see that it is growing in popularity. Wee Waa High School is a great example of a school that has really got behind the Cadet Program and is doing everything it can to encourage students to become volunteers."
Inspector Loughlin presented the cadets with their graduation certificates during a ceremony at Wee Waa 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 Wee Waa High School."
Inspector Loughlin 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 seven 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 these 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."
