Dear Cadets & Parents/Guardians

In light of the restrictions we currently face, the organisation has been working hard behind the scenes to provide infrastructure and IT solutions to launch the delivery of the Cadet experience through virtual Parade evenings.

The 2358 staff team have also been working hard behind the scenes familiarising themselves with this new technology and ways of working, and I am pleased to announce that we now feel ready to begin delivery of virtual Parade evenings.

We will be publishing events through Cadet Portal, which will automatically send an email to each Cadet, Cadets should then copy the link to the live presentation from the event into their internet browser and join the event at the specified time. The first event is planned for this coming Thursday.

Watch out for changes to the Calendar on this website with updates to the planned events. Parents will be contacted directly in due course to support this communication to ensure all Cadets are aware that we are back up & running.

Cadets & Parents/Guardians should email the Squadron of they have any difficulty with these new planned arrangements, especially those who have not yet established a working Cadet portal login.
