It was the first week back for Repton’s CCF Department on Wednesday 6th September and not a typical Wednesday afternoon as our new Heads of CCF were announced.
Sgt Felix Meynell (U6C) has been appointed the role of Head of Lower Sixth CCF, Sgt Jessica Richardson (U6G) is Head of the Cadre (O Block) and Sgt Charlie Wilbraham (U6S) has been promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant and appointed Senior Cadet CCF.
It was the new B Block’s turn to start Army and RAF and, after a talk from Major Wadsworth to explain how CCF works and its structure, the individual Houses were up and ready to go and collect their new kit. The A Block had their first taste of CCF with a foot drill under direction from the Lower Sixth and Upper Sixth NCOs’.
A final parade took place to assess the standard of turnout and drill, and it was a performance that surpassed previous first day parades. Overall, a great first day back to CCF Michaelmas 2017.
