Cadets marched in to the room and were inspected by Lion President. Sandra one of the leaders at St Johns gave a talk on what the Cadets and Beavers did and what they have done in the past year.
The President then presented the group with a new laptop projector which will allow them to learn first aid from videos made by headquarters rather than relying on books and pamphlets for instruction.
About St John Ambulance Cadets and Badgers:
Guided by youth leaders, Cadets take part in an interactive and full programme, working towards their Grand Prior Award. The programme enables young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment, but with challenge and excitement appropriate to their age.
Cadets can choose from over seventy different subjects to help complete their award. These range from Fire prevention and Photography, to Sports and first aid.
Younger Cadets learn first aid skills through our training course for young people while older Cadets can undertake a community first aid or first aid at work course. Cadets can put their first aid and other communication skills into practice by providing first aid to the public at events or teaching first aid to other young people and adults.
Badgers take part in a lively programme, working towards their Super Badger Award. The programme has been developed to enable young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment.
Badgers can choose from fifteen subjects to help complete their award. These range from Creative and Active, to Healthy and Caring.
Once a Badger has completed their membership paw, they move onto their bronze paw, which is awarded after completing three subjects. A further three subjects will gain the silver paw and another three for the gold paw. A Badger becomes a super Badger when they have completed twelve subjects.
Badgers learn important first aid skills through their Super Badger Award and various first aid courses. Badgers can get a really cool black and white uniform which they can wear in the Sett and at some public events.
