Conflict Resolution

The Cadet Program encourages the resolution of concerns at the lowest level possible. All concerns will be treated with respect and professionalism.

Parents should:

  • have a contact number for the Commanding Officer or a member of the staff
  • ensure that your child has a number for the senior cadet in his or her flight
  • bring concerns to the attention of the Commanding Officer as soon as possible
  • make an appointment - parade nights are busy

Contact the Sponsoring Committee for matters that concern fundraising, how money is spent, committee decisions and recruiting.
