Cadet Han Jie (Shawn) Liu and Cadet Arshmeet Singh Bewli.

Cadets tops in music, tops in platoon

2812 Royal Canadian Army Cadets complete summer training course in Vernon.

Cadet Han Jie (Shawn) Liu was selected as the top cadet in the Basic Band Courses at the final parade of Bravo Training Group, while Cadet Arshmeet Singh Bewli received the award as top cadet in 21 Platoon at the final parade of Delta Training Group at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Both teens are members of 2812 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, which is based in Surrey.

During the summer, more than 1,200 Army, Sea, and Air Cadets from western Canada spent up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley training centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.

Liu and other cadets in Bravo Company enrolled in band courses focus almost exclusively on music training to improve their skills with their chosen instruments.

Bravo Company also marched in community parades in Oliver and Penticton and performed several public concerts in Vernon.

Cadets enrolled in the Pipes and Drums courses also spent many hours practicing Highland dancing, which they demonstrated to the cadets at VACSTC during a band concert in the final week.

Bewli attended the three-week Basic Marksmanship Instructor Course, where cadets learned the principles of Army Cadet Marksmanship, and the skills necessary to conduct a summer biathlon.

Cadets were also taught the marksmanship skills to improve their results in competitions.
