Sea Cadets is delighted to announce that Broadgreen International School in Liverpool is set to open a Sea Cadet unit this September, thanks to funding from the Government’s Cadet Expansion Programme. Volunteers from Hutyon with Roby Sea Cadets will run Sea Cadet activities for school pupils in all year groups every Tuesday. In July, Sea Cadets organised a taster session at the SCC North West Boating Station in Crosby where 14 young people in Year 7 went sailing, rowing and kayaking, some for the very first time! For the complete novices, they had access to a simulator so they could learn the basics before getting out on the water. Despite the rain, the pupils had lots of fun and during their time at the boating station they learnt technical boating words, beginner boat control, launching and recovery and basic principles of sailing and kayaking.
Mr Farrell, Head of Year 10 who is leading the Sea Cadet Unit at Broadgreen International School, said: “We are really excited to be starting a Sea Cadet unit in school and have so far had a great response from the students. We are looking forward to being able to offer the students an array of new skills and qualifications and can’t wait to get started!”
