Currently Band doesn't not have a music program.
50 Dripstone Road, Casuarina, NT
Mondays 6.45pm to 8.30pm
The Cadet Band Division meets on Monday nights at 6:45pm to 8:30pm. Narelle McLaughlin is the superintendent of the division and receives help from Felix Ho (Divisional Officer/Trainer), Amy McKay (Divisional Nursing Officer) and Sarah McLaughlin (Cadet Leader).
The division has Cadet and Junior programs. Juniors can start from the age of 8 and will undertake activities such as basic first-aid and interest badges such as Cooking, Handicrafts, Fire Safety, Childcare and Anzac Heritage.
At the age of 11, juniors complete a first-aid course called Preliminary First-aid which now qualifies them as a Cadet and provides them with many exciting opportunities.
Annually Cadets must complete a first-aid re-accreditation to brush up on first-aid skills which allows them to attend public duties performing first-aid at public events such as BMX, Mindil Markets, Royal Darwin Show, Expo's and many other events.
Cadets also complete Proficiency Badges ranging from Cooking to Radio Communication and Personal Safety. If Cadets complete 12 badges between the age of 11 and 18 they obtain the Grand Prior's Badge which is a great honour.
Annually the Cadet band Division enters a Team, Individual and occasionally Cadet Leader into the NT Cadet Competitions. When successful in winning the NT competitions the Cadets travel down south to compete in Nationals and attend the National Camp in a different State each year. Cadet Band has brought home a National Team trophy in 2008 and most recently in 2012 the Cadet Band Individual won the National Competitions bringing home the Individual trophy. The first time the Individual category has been won by the NT since National Competitions
started in 1968.
Currently we don't have a music program however if interest for this program is shown the program could be reinstated.
