Hollywood helps to develop the State’s cadets
Aug 11, 2017
On Saturday 29 July, Hollywood Private Hospital (Hollywood) Chief Executive Officer, Peter Mott, proudly presented a cheque to The Returned & Services League of Western Australia (RSLWA) in support of the Cadet of the Year Spirit of the ANZAC Award Program.
The Program is managed by the Youth Development and Cadet Support Committee and allows the top four cadets to travel and undertake activities which contribute to their development within RSLWA.
Cadets who nominate to join the prestigious program attend a testing day which includes a written exam on Australian general knowledge, a five minute speech, dress and bearing, and first aid.
This year’s winners went to Canberra for the ANZAC Commemoration where they marched in the Dawn Service and visited some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, including the Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, and the National Museum of Australia.
Commenting on Hollywood’s sponsorship, Peter said "As a former military hospital, Hollywood has cared for the State’s veteran community for over 70 years. Our connection with RSLWA is very unique and it’s an honour to partner with the organisation on such an important developmental youth program."
Hollywood’s support of the State’s cadets is also evident in the RSL WA Efficiency Shield. The award initiative was introduced by Hollywood and RSLWA in 2004 to recognise the most competent and efficient Cadet Units.
