On Thursday we had the Defence Force Recruiting personnel visit Xavier to discuss Women in Defence, along with them we also had Albury High, James Fallon, Bright High, Victory Lutheran and St Paul’s Walla. It was a great day where the girls were introduced to all three arms of the Defence; Army, Navy and Air force. They undertook tactical training, team building and were given a broad overview of the different jobs in the Defence, from being a Paramedic, Doctor, Dentist, Administrator and Pilot.
Anna Corrigan in year 10 was awarded Student of Merit for displaying the Defence Values of Professionalism, Loyalty, Integrity, Courage, Innovation and Teamwork during the Defence Force Recruiting Program. All of the other girls were commended on their friendly, open minded behaviour in welcoming in the Defence force and the girls from the other schools. A great day was had by all.
