BUSH RANGERS

Overview

For children in Years 7-10 from the Roleystone Community.

The Roleystone Bushranger Cadets is a cadet unit operated by volunteer college staff  as part of the Bushrangers W.A. initiative of the Department of Communities, which promotes environmental awareness and self-development. Cadet involvement promotes self-esteem, resilience, independence and broadens the students’ knowledge on a range of topics from the conservation of the natural environment, to pitching a tent and surviving in the bush.

We believe living in the Roleystone Community, in a jarrah forest habitat comes with great responsibility. Through the Cadet program we hope to encourage an appreciation and education of the environment and the natural setting in which we live.

In 2017, the Roleystone Bushranger cadet instructors were able to reequip the unit with new equipment thanks to a Lotterywest Grant.

We regularly try to tackle the growing jarrah dieback issue, injecting trees on the school grounds. Our cadets love to get involved and RoleyBushCare regularly come along to educate newcomers and to contribute to saving Roleystone’s jarrah trees.

Bushranger Cadets usually meet every Tuesday from 3.15pm - 4.45pm and they are supplied with a Cadet uniform (to be returned when the student leaves the program). There is no cost for week to week sessions. 

Camps, incursions and excursions are usually funded by the Department of Communities, but may incur a small cost. A small bond is also payable to RCC.
