Havelock Academy students celebrate the impact of CCF

Friday, February 17, 2017

Students and staff at Havelock Academy have been celebrating the impact of their Combined Cadet Force (CCF) on academy life.

To mark the occasion, students were joined by a range of personnel from the Cadet Training Team, to discuss the difference the CCF has made to studying at Havelock.

Joanne Woodhouse, 2Lt Contingent Commander CCF and Teacher at Havelock Academy, said: “We are incredibly proud of the impact that the CCF unit has had on the lives of students at Havelock Academy.

“Our students have gained so many important life skills, such as a sense of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. It has also been incredible to see their confidence grow, and the impact that it has had on their studies.”

The Havelock CCF contingent paraded to greet the visitors who included, Training Officer Captain Nick Vischer, Executive Officer Captain Stephen Moyle and Deputy Commander Colonel Andy Hadfield as well as a number of other senior personnel. Students then had the chance to ask questions about careers in the Armed Forces, before presenting a Havelock Academy CCF plaque to the inspiring visitors.

Joanne Woodhouse added: “A huge thank you to all who took part and helped join in the celebrations. It was a pleasure to share our stories of success as part of the CCF.”
