On the lookout for new cadets

THE Wondai army cadet unit wants you.

On Sunday the cadet unit is having a sign-on day at the 25/49 Royal Queensland Regiment Depot at Bramston St, Wondai.

The cadet program is open to youths between the ages of 12-and-a-half and 18.

Australian Army Cadets training officer Lieutenant Shane Davey said the cadet program taught young people many life skills.

"Cadets is a youth development organisation with a military theme and we try to get the kids to come out of their shell and build their self-confidence," he said.

"A lot of leadership skills are learnt throughout a cadet career as well as navigation, field craft, how to survive in the bush and how to set up a hootchie."

The sign-on day will run from 10am to 3pm and a free sausage sizzle will be put on at lunch.

"This weekend is about getting everyone to come along so prospective cadets know what to expect," Lt Davey said.

"And current cadets will be putting up displays to show people what the army cadets are all about."

The Wondai army cadets will also be presented with a sword and pace stick by the Kingaroy RSL sub branch on Sunday.

Securing these items was made possible by the RSL District Cadet Development Fund.
