Commencing Cycle-1/2017

As we mentioned on New Recruit Info Night, we have experienced very strong demand to join the unit this cycle. We would love to take everyone however, we have limited equipment available to issue. Available places will go first to new recruits who have both submitted completed Joining Documents as well as having paid the unit joining fee.

We appreciate your ongoing support and we will do everything we can to ensure the maximum number of new recruits can join the unit this cycle. We are continuing to chase up kit returns from ex-cadets who have recently left the unit and our success in that will open additional positions this intake. We will have a clearer idea over the next 2-3 weeks of the max. final numbers we can accept. We will advise the max. positions available this intake by no later than Thur 9th March.

At this stage we recommend all potential new recruits parade with the unit up until Tue 7th March to ensure that you don’t miss any training.

Icon for news item #107 Forums accounts for new recruits

Posted on 02/09/2016

Despite our best efforts, a number of new recruits' forums accounts are reportedly inaccessible due to issues with provided password. Some of these have been rectified since Tuesday and if recruits were having difficulty logging in, here are some steps to take:

  1. Try your issued password again – some accounts were reset back to those passwords & manually tested
  2. Attempt a self-service password reset. Many recruits are using their parent's email address – so make sure to look in the parent's email inbox, or otherwise the recruit's own
  3. If neither of these work, please email staff@206acu.org.au to request a reset.

    Posted on 03/03/2015

    The unit is staging a new Recruit Induction Weekend as per the details below. This is a formal, compulsory unit parade for all of 3-PLT (including all new recruits). The remainder of the Cadet Command Team are required for Sat only. The weekend will consist of uniform and equipment issue as well as some basic recruit training.

    We are 95% likely to have Army transport from Marist out to Banksmeadow on Sat am. However, just to be sure, check back again on Friday night to make sure that there has been no change. If the Army transport is withdrawn then parents will need to directly transport cadets & new recruits out to Banksmeadow.

    Posted on 05/03/2015

    If you are a new Recruit and go to Marist you will be aware that you need to complete 2hrs of Expo service before coming out to the New Recruit Induction Weekend. This previously meant that you couldnt leave with the rest of the unit on Sat morning and your parents would need to drive you all the way out to Banksmeadow after your 2hrs of Expo service was completed Sat am.

    As a result of a special arrangement with the Deputy Headmaster you can now complete your 2hrs Expo service on Friday afternoon. If you do that it means you can form up and leave with the rest of the unit on Sat and your parents will not need to drive you.

    Comd Team members who are at Marist are still required to complete their Expo service Sat am.
