“ I do solemnly promise on my honour to serve my corps loyally and to use every endeavour to become a good citizen, honouring my Queen, my country and my flag.”
Since our return to in-person training a few weeks ago, we've had new cadets join us every week. They love to learn, explore, and are curious about what challenges and adventures await them in the Sea Cadet program.
During their first few weeks in the program, the new recruits are welcomed by every cadet and officer at the corps. They start off by getting a glimpse of Tuesday night activities and have opportunities to ask questions. They even get an exclusive tour of the ship from our new recruits PO, POC1 Neiterman.
This week at the ship, we took some time to welcome and appreciate eight of our new cadets. They took an oath on the ship to “serve my corps loyally” and “become a good citizen.” So far, our new recruits have enjoyed their new experiences in their short time with us. They have taken part in a fitness assessment, helped us with our community cleanup initiative, and have received their very own Sea Cadet uniform.
As the night came to a close, the new recruits received certificate signifying their membership and oath to RCSCC 96 Dundas. We are very appreciative of our new recruits and hope that many more will join in the near future.

This week, cadets from RCSCC Dundas played a BIG game of Cadet Battleship!
Our Staff Cadets, as part of their PO503 leadership tasking, ran with one of Lt(N) Ellis' activity ideas and created a cadet version of the classic board game: Battleship! The cadets built the gameboard, developed the rules and game procedures and tonight executed the activity with the ship's company.
Following a Marine Radio Communication class with NCdt Harris, the Staff Cadets were able to get the ship's company to utilize their new skill to call the 'shots' in the game. BUT, before they were able to 'fire', they had to correctly answer a general cadet knowledge question. This was not only a great leadership exercise for the staff cadets, it was also a wonderful way to conduct a 'lesson confirmation' the entire ship's company could benefit from.
Bravo Zulu to the team who lead this activity: CPOC2 Zhang, POC1 Neiterman and POC1 Yu.
A special shout out to CI Pettiti (from RCSCC Lion) who was gracious enough to create those 3D Battleships for us.
We have another group of Staff Cadets running next week's training night as part of their leadership tasking. It will require gym clothes.... Stay Tuned!
