ANGLICAN CHURCH GRAMMAR SCHOOL Tri-service Cadets – An Unique Aspect of Churchie’s Service Program Churchie’s Tri-service Cadets program has been at the fore front of the School’s Personal Development and Leadership of young men, illustrating its commitment to community service and its alignment with the internationally accredited Duke of Edinburgh Award program. ‘The School’s Tri-service Cadets, whether from the Army, Navy or Air Force Cadet units, have received glowing feedback from a wide area of our local community and their efforts through the year is a great credit to the School and their families,’ Tri-service Coordinator, Mr Geoffrey Hughes stated. With student participation numbers increasing over the last five years, the School now has 160 Cadets across the three services in the program. Parade timings occur every Monday afternoon to military precision, whilst weekend bivouacs are conducted by each of the three services, three to four times a year. Each service also holds an annual eight-day camp with many challenging and interesting activities, during the September vacation, attended by Cadets from across South East Queensland.

Other special occasions include the Beating Retreat Graduation Parade for departing Year 12 Cadets and the Legacy Badge Appeal ( In 2011, the Churchie Cadets raised over $14,000 for Legacy).
