Southern Cross Group were proud to attend the annual St. John’s Cadet Awards at a recent dinner cruise in Sydney, as sponsors and strategic partners of St. Johns’, we were encouraged to see first-hand the excellent achievements of the their young trainees as they educate themselves on vital skills that may one day be called upon to save someone’s life.
Cadet’s take part in a number of proficiency badges as part of their ongoing training, and once twelve proficiencies have been obtained and a certain number of volunteer hours have been reached, Cadets are awarded with the Grand Priors Badge, one of the highest honours for cadet members. Also awarded on the night were the Peter Falkland Award for the most outstanding cadet or cadet leader and the Edeline Jenkyn Trophy for leadership, dedication and commitment to St. John.
