Grade 12 student Regimental Sergeant Major Emily Flude has been celebrated in the Headmasters Assembly and presented with a trophy from the school.
The Australian Army Cadets website charts Emily’s career since she joined in February of 2018 at 62 ACU in Launceston, Tasmania. In November of that year, she completed her LCPL Course. In January of 2020 Emily completed her Senior Leadership Course and was awarded with the leadership award at the end of the course. At the beginning of 2021 Emily completed her CUOs course and was awarded the student of merit award. She was then appointed as a platoon commander at 62 ACU.
In late 2021, Emily was selected as the National Cadet Regimental Sergeant Major and assumed the position at the start of 2022.
As the National Cadet Regimental Sergeant Major, along with the National Cadet Under Officer, National Cadet Adjutant, and National Cadet Training Officer, CDTWO Emily Flude will endeavour to make cadets accessible to each individual youth member, from recruits to NCOs, by acting as the point of contact between national AAC HQ and individual units. She will ensure that the exceptional quality of the policies and traditions within the Australian Army Cadets are sustained whilst working to facilitate the implementation of the new Cadet Development Continuum and personal initiatives.
Lieutenant Colonel Darryl Blazley presented Emily with her trophy in front of her fellow students and parents. We applaud Emily’s continued leadership and dedication to the Army Cadets.
