The RCMP Academy, “Depot” Division hosted students from Grades 6 to 8 of the Sacred Heart Community School for an afternoon of learning as well as a modified Regimental Dinner.
“Depot” Division and Sacred Heart are also partners in the Sacred Heart Reading Program.
Students were toured around base, learned about the Cadet Training Program and were able to experience it themselves through adapted training exercises.
They stood at attention, marched and ran to where ever they were going. The students also tried on cadet uniforms and participated in team-building activities by passing around balloons and creating school spirit chants.
During the Sergeant Major’s Parade, Grade 8 student Jalen Funmaker inspected the troops. Luckily, he found no mistakes.
In keeping with two-century-old traditions that began in Great Britain, the RCMP Regimental Dinner is a custom that fosters high morale and good fellowship between senior and junior members.
Grade 8 student Caralee Stevenson professionally hosted the dinner as Mess President.
As is tradition during Regimental Dinners, the most senior member of the Division present, Commanding Officer Brenda Lucki, served the most junior member in attendance. Grade 6 student Jordan Ermine received the meal with great pleasure.
