ST CYRES pupil Daniel Parfitt was recently promoted to Petty Officer Cadet.
A school spokesman praised Year 11 pupil Daniel for his promotion.
“Everyone at St Cyres is proud of Daniel’s success and we were pleased to hear his account of the promotion.”
“I went to the MOD base ‘Caledonia’ to achieve the next rank in the Sea Cadets,” added Daniel.
“It is the highest rank you can achieve in the Sea Cadets. To achieve this rank I attended a course in October for a week to be assessed for my suitability. I was constantly assessed on skills such as drill, presentation, practical leadership tasks and team work. I passed my board with Distinction and I am the only POC in my Sea Cadets District.”
