ADF Careers Info Camp, 16-20th April 2007

For some time now we have requested a greater access to ADF personnel regarding info for cadets interested in the possibility of  taking on a career in the ADF. Well, our HQ has been listening and as a result are staging a Careers Information Camp in week 2 of the upcoming April school holidays for eligible members of the ADFC. The camp provides the best opportunity to hear specific information for ADF careers for Army, Navy and Air Force cadets.

At the camp there will be expert speakers including Pilots, Bomb Disposal, Special Forces, Fire Fighting, Technical Specialists, Air Traffic Controllers, Weapons Specialists and many more. There will also be visits to Army, Navy and Air Force establishments. See mil equipment up close and find out how it works. Participate in adventurous activities such as WTSS, assault courses, rock climbing and a night out in Sydney. Finally, you will attend a proper Mess Dining-In Night hosted by senior Defence Officials.

All costs for transport, rations and accommodation will be covered by Defence.

The specific details with regards kit list, timings and location(s) will be advised shortly. This is a new and exciting program by the ADF that I feel we should fully support, that way the ADF will stage bigger and better ones in the future. 

You must be 16 or over to nominate - if you are, I urge you to nominate your wish to attend via email asap. Completed documentation must be to CAPT Wark NLT Tue, 20th Feb.

Major Move

The move that was on the horizon for over six months has finally taken place. 206ACU has relocated from North Sydney Boys High School (the home of 206ACU since 1917; for 87 years) to Marist College, North Shore.

This move has presented the unit with better facilities and grounds than NSBHS, and the prospect for expansion looks excellent.

New address: Marist College North Shore, 270 Miller St, North Sydney
