Our Cadets/Leadership program focuses on developing leadership skills, fitness, and citizenship. It has evolved from its traditional military roots into a comprehensive training program emphasizing teamwork and individual achievement. In 2018, the program was reimagined as "Leadership," offering students a range of options such as leadership training, outdoor education, music, study hall, and community service in the first two terms with a commitment to Cadet Parade season in Term 3. The program has expanded to include credit-based courses in Grades 9 to 12 and offers activities such as mountain biking, archery, and winter expeditions.
