Cadets, skills and service

A tradition of cadets and service to the community.

Pittwater House has a long tradition of Cadets and providing support to the local community. We believe that our students have a responsibility to contribute to the community. 

Part of this involves being thoughtful, responsible individuals and includes involvement in a wide variety of community service programs. 

Cadets

The Army Cadet Program is more than outdoor recreation and community service. It teaches leadership and team building skills. Senior students run the day-to-day operations of the unit and mentor the younger students.

The highlights of the Cadet calendar are the overnight camps. During the camps, Cadets undertake many activities and challenges, including camping-out overnight, canoeing, rafting, abseiling and navigation.

Cadets is voluntary. It’s part of the NSW Australian Army Cadets Brigade, which is in turn part of the Commonwealth Government's Australian Defence Force Cadets Scheme.

Service to the community

Through our Skills and Service Program, your child can choose to work on projects to support a variety of community programs, including environmental-conservation, aged care and animal welfare.

Each year the senior prefects nominate a charity worthy of support and they co-ordinate events and programs to raise money.
