Congratulations to Oscar Watson Maguire (Year 11) who over the Easter holiday was selected to take part in Ex OAK LEAF 2019 – an annual exchange exercise the UK participates in with the Royal Canadian Army Cadets (RCAC) each summer. This exchange was established in 1972 and is the Army’s Cadets’ main contribution to International Defence Engagement between the UK and Canada. 60 Cadets are selected to attend either the Leadership and Challenge Course in Rocky Mountains, Expedition Instructor Course in Whitehorse or Argonaut and the Fitness and Sport Instructor Course in Argonaut.

Oscar was successful on gaining his first choice and one of just 12 places on the RCAC Leadership and Challenge Course in the Rocky Mountains this summer. This is a fantastic opportunity for him and it will add value to his role within the school CCF and for his future aspiration of joining HM Armed Forces.
