Matrix CCF National Arboretum Memorial Visit

Matrix CCF National Arboretum Memorial Visit

Turves Green Combined Cadet Force (CCF) recently had the opportunity to attend the Matrix Trust wide event at the National Arboretum Memorial taking 24 of our cadets, with all schools included over 120 cadets attended. During this event, the pupils from Turves Green CCF had a meaningful and educational experience as they spent the day exploring war memorials and historical artefacts. The event provided them with a unique opportunity to deepen their understanding of the sacrifices made by those who served in the armed forces. As part of the event, the pupils also participated in a solemn 2-minute silent service at the RAF Memorial, paying their respects to the fallen. This experience not only allowed the pupils to engage with history but also instilled in them a sense of reverence and appreciation for the bravery and dedication of those who have served their country.
In the coming months, Turves Green Combined Cadet Force (CCF) offers an array of exciting opportunities for our cadets. One of the highlights includes rifle training, where cadets will have the chance to develop their marksmanship skills under expert guidance. Additionally, there is the eagerly anticipated trust-wide RAST (CCF Competition), where squadrons will compete in a range of team-building activities, shooting challenges, drill exercises, and even first aid simulations. This event promises to be a thrilling showcase of talent, camaraderie, and the diverse skills that the CCF fosters. Cadets can look forward to engaging in these activities and much more, as they continue to grow and excel within the Turves Green CCF community.
