What I've Learnt
by CDTSGT Smith
When I look back at my 2-and-half years at 206 Army Cadet Unit, I am amazed at how much I have learned and experienced. 206 Army Cadet Unit's training offers so much to our cadets and new recruits. We do exciting training in areas such as First Aid, Drill, Navigation, Team Work, Survival, Leadership and Fieldcraft. I have also learnt vital life-long character traits such as: self-discipline, interpersonal communication, working within an organisation and mutual respect.
206 ACU also offers a great way to meet and socialise with teenagers in your area. I've met hundreds of other cadets in my 2-and-half at 206ACU. We have over 50 new recruits joining the unit each year. 206ACU also offers plenty of opportunities for leadership and adventure training, such as: promotion courses, roping and boating adventure camps, ceremonial parades, and firearms safety .
We also undertake practical/physical training activities, such as: pack marches, patrolling, night exercises, simulated casualty scenarios and navigation exercises.
Thats why I think 206 ACU stands above the rest!
