Teambuilding, Trampolining and Trophies!
The ability to work together as a team is key within any group and therefore teambuilding is a key skill which is developed on within the air cadets. Although not technically an activity in its own right it forms a part of all activities and the use of leadership style exercises can further develop these skills. Exercises can range from table top communication based planning exercises to full weekend scenarios which require effective teamwork throughout.
Trampolining is an activity which has previously been undertaken by cadets on the squadron as an opportunity to let off some steam and have fun while at the same time developing their fitness. Trampoloning could also be used as part of the physical section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award!
Back in October we were able to announce that 1338 (Seaham) Squadron had been selected as the best squadron overall in Durham Northumberland Wing Air Cadets and the winners of the Lindisfarne Trophy, following the inspections carried our earlier this year, due to the performance in the Pusey trophy for administration (joint 1st place) and the Durham trophy for cadet experience (1st place). At the end of November, Flying Officer McCully, Officer Commanding 1338 (Seaham) Squadron, attending the wing awards evening to receive the trophies. Also in attendance at the wing awards evening were Cpl Bell, who was presented with her Cadet 100 Badge, and Cdt Bean, who was presented with his BTEC Certificate. Well done to both!
