I've been an instructor in the air cadets for 15 years. It's a brilliant opportunity for your dc to broaden their horizons. they'll get to do loads of adventure training, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, flying etc. I never cease to be amazed how the kids join as timid little mice and blossom into confident, well rounded young people. An added benefit is that no type of criminal behaviour is tolerated - so no drugs etc.
Thanks At the moment he does lifesaving on Monday and Scouts on Friday. The air cadets came into school yesterday as they use the school site and gave a presentation in assembly. They will also be doing a science enrichment day in October where they will give out more details.Ds excels at science so I know he should enjoy that.
I spoke to someone last night and it seems they do a Blues night on Monday and a Camoflauge/greens night Wednesday. On Monday he will have just 15 minutes to get changed from swimming and get 5 miles down the road. Also won't get home until after 10.
Although the lady we spoke seemed to think it would be okay to do just one night,how would that affect him?
