Adams’ cadets win CCF competition

As the CCF at Adams’ Grammar School enters its hundredth year, congratulations are in order for the school’s Army contingent which has once again won the West Midlands Brigade Military Skills and March Competition. The 2015 team won in all four categories: Best CCF March and Shoot; Overall Winners March and Shoot CCF and ACF; Best CCF Military Skills; and Best Overall CCF in the Region for Military Skills. 

One Adams’ cadet, Company Sergeant Major Josh Stork, completed a prestigious six-week training course in Canada. Known as the Rocky Mountain Leadership and Challenge course, Josh was one of just 12 cadets selected from across the UK to attend the course as part of the British Exchange with the Canadian Cadet Force. Conducted within the boundaries of Alberta and British Columbia Provincial Parks and Banff National Park, Josh experienced six weeks of challenging adventurous training while taking on leadership roles and responsibilities. As part of the course Josh gained a Basic First Aid qualification with the Canadian Red Cross and a Wilderness First Aid qualification. He was also awarded the silver level of the Canadian Fitness Assessment. 

Josh says: ‘It was a fantastic experience which I will never forget. I took part in a number of adventurous training activities including canoeing, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding and a glacier mountaineering expedition. Unfortunately I missed the alpine trekking cycle as I had to have a wisdom tooth extracted, but that certainly didn’t spoil my experience!’ Lt Samantha Cheadle, Senior Escort Office for the Rocky Mountain Exchange adds: ‘Throughout the six weeks Josh showed outstanding initiative, strength of character and compassion and I have no doubt that he has a strong future ahead of him no matter where his path leads. It has been an absolute pleasure to get to know Josh over the six weeks and he has been an exemplary ambassador for Adams’ Grammar School, its Combined Cadet Force and for the British Cadet Force as a whole.’
