Australian Army Cadets

In its third year, St Hilda’s is offering Australian Army Cadets as a Year 9 - 12 cocurricular option in 2020. Australian Army Cadets is a youth development organisation that aims to develop skills in decision-making, leadership, planning, public speaking, resilience and working in a team environment. St Hilda’s is the only private girls’ school in WA to offer Army Cadets.
