The College has two Cadets programs students can join, Woodvale Emergency Cadets and Surf Cadets.
Woodvale Emergency Cadets has been operating for over 10 years and provides students with leadership opportunities and teaches them a wide range of emergency service skills.
The Cadets have achieved success in Community Service Awards and Emergency Services of the Year awards. Membership is open to Years 7 (over the age of 12) to Year 12 students from the College.
The unit meets every Monday except public holidays between 15:30 and 17:30 and participants take part in a range of curriculum including:
The unit takes part in several camps and excursions each year and in the past has visited Harvey, Dwellingup, Toodyay, Albany and Hillarys.
The unit is supported by Department for Communities and our host organisation is the Department of Fire and Emergency Services. Most costs are covered by a grant from the state government, but parents are asked to contribute some payment towards camps, excursions and some parts of the uniform.
Lifesaving Cadets (Surf Cadets) entered its fifteenth year of operation at Woodvale and caters for students in Years 7, 8, 9, &10. Membership of the cadet group will be capped at 60 for this year. There are currently positions still available.
Lifesaving Cadets operates each Tuesday from 3.10pm to 5.00pm.
There is no charge for membership of the Surf Cadets, although there will be a nominal charge for camps and excursions. Cadets are offered the chance to attend at least one camp and one day excursion per year.
