Level 5 Workshop: This announcement is for all Level 5’s.

As we approach the PO 513 workshop on 12 Dec 2020 we have 6 different classes that are available for selection. The due date for selection is 0800hrs on December 4th. Please check your email for more information.

Time Management – This workshop will provide cadets with tools to better manage their busy schedules. Topics for discussion include managing stress, honouring commitments, meeting deadlines, limiting procrastination, identifying and dealing with scheduling changes, keeping an agenda, and multi-tasking.

Ethics: Making Tough Choices – This workshop will provide cadets with the opportunity to discuss ethics with their peers as it relates to their role as a cadet. It has been designed to include a discussion on what ethics is and how it is present in all aspects of life. Cadets will work through case studies to examine their own perceptions of ethics and how ethical decision-making can often require making tough choices.

Healthy Relationships – This workshop deals with the various relationships that senior cadets must make and maintain. Discussions on the difference between professional and personal relationships as well as the need to establish relationships with subordinates, superiors and peers will be combined with activities dealing with transitional relationships and the impact of inappropriate relationships (e.g., moral, legal, administrative). The idea of a relationship between the cadet corps/squadron and the community will also be explored.

Communication Tools – This workshop provides cadets the tools to enhance their communication skills. Activities covering active listening, summarizing tools, and tips on paraphrasing are combined with discussions on effective questioning techniques as well as non-verbal communications (e.g. body language).

Stress Management – This workshop will provide cadets the tools to better understand stress management. Discussions will include types of stress, ways to detect stress, coping with stress and skills to minimize or alleviate stress in one’s daily routine.

Unit Command Team Working Relationship – This workshop will focus on the interaction between the Unit CO and senior cadet. Discussions will include command team concept, roles and responsibilities of the CPO1/CWO/WO1.

Please check your email sent to all Level 5’s from SLt Morris for more information and selection process details.

Christmas Cards for our Troops: More than 2,000 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members are currently deployed on missions and will be serving far from their friends and families during the holidays. Sending holiday greeting cards to our troops is one way to show our appreciation—and to remind them that someone is thinking of them this holiday season.

You can send a Christmas card or even a letter to any deployed CAF member somewhere in the world by sending it, addressed to “Any Canadian Armed Forces Member,”  The CAF will sort the cards and letters and distribute them among the various missions and regions around the world. You can send as many as you like, though each will need a stamp to get it to Belleville.

The cards have to be received in Belleville by December 9 (I know this is short notice but they must be in the mail by this upcoming Saturday, December 5 or Sunday, December 6) so they can be distributed to the troops in time for Christmas.  To send a holiday card to our troops, address it (stamped) to:

Any Canadian Armed Forces Member

PO Box 5004 Stn Forces

Belleville, ON

K8N 5W6

We would like to track 102 Silver Fox Squadron participation in this important event.  If you will send a Christmas card, please send a little email to Sgt Mena E at mena.eac13@gmail.com and Cpl Cormier at sebcor042@gmail.com to let them know.
