  1. Hello Readers!
  2. Spring has sprung and 217 ACU has weathered the winter..
  3. In late July, we had several Cadets attend a First Aid course in 25 ACU’s training location and are now qualified in First Aid. Also thanks to 25 ACU for inviting us to attend their field training weekend at Camp Chapman (Somersby) in September as this gave the Cadets plenty of additional skills to go to 21 AAC BN’s AFX during the holidays.
  4. 217 ACU hosted at Morisset High School the 21 AAC BN Competition Day, where Cadets from all over the Hunter and Central Coast area competed in several events including: a Senior and Junior Division Drill competition, Tug-O-War, Volleyball, Touch Footy and Vortex throwing. We had some impressive results with Tug-O-War matches going over 2 minutes and Vortex throws over 50 meters. 217 ACU performed admirably and took out 1st place in the Junior Drill Competition. A big thank you to Morisset High for allowing the Battalion to use the School facilities for this event!
  5. At the end of September, 21 AAC BN held their Annual Field Exercise (AFX) at Singleton Military Area and the 4 day event was well planned with exciting activities which included, Weapons familiarisation, Navigation and First Aid scenarios along with participating in Command and Observation Posts.

Future activities include an adventure training activity at Tree Top            Adventure Park – Minmi, Remembrance Day at Toronto Memorial in Goffet Park and our End of Year ceremonies on 25th November 2023..  


Thank you for your continued support and patience.


Kind regards
