Blue Company is where the journey through our Cadet Corps system starts, with a heavy emphasis on FUN. Subjects are taught to the Cadets, but as is often the case with youngsters of this age, their attention span can be somewhat limited.
Our wonderfully patient instructors can often be seen running about, rounding the Cadets up as they march off in the wrong direction, move out of a simple line, or as they often do, drift off into play mode!
Tasks such as basic drill, communications etc. are loosely taught and great fun is had by all, especially with some of the answers given by the Blue Company Cadets.
Parents often stay to watch over their children in this group for the first few weeks, which is welcomed, as we understand that they may feel intimidated by a large hall with lots of new faces in it.
We accept cadets into Blue Company from 6½ years of age, and they stay until they are 9 years old.
