Congratulations on your selection to undertake initial officer training at ADFA. You can look forward to an exciting, challenging and rewarding experience in an environment where you will have the opportunity, and be encouraged, to excel. 2. A map of ADFA is attached at annex A. You will need to refer to this map to identify key locations whilst reading this instruction. To avoid confusion, ADFA includes the University College, provided by the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Aim 3. The aim of this instruction is to assist you with your preparation for entry into ADFA. Letter to parents or guardians 4. For those of you who are new to the Australian Defence Force (ADF), a letter to your parents or guardians is attached with this instruction. This is to welcome them as your family to the greater ADF family and to give them some information about the experience that you will soon undertake. Arrival at ADFA 5. The recruiting centres will arrange your transport to Canberra. If you travel by aircraft, you will be met at Canberra Airport and transported to ADFA by my staff. If you travel by bus, you will be dropped at ADFA and met by ADFA staff. Year One Familiarisation Training (YOFT) 21 January - 19 February 2011 6. The induction period is known as YOFT is intended to provide midshipmen and officer cadets with the basic military and personal skills essential for their early Service careers and for living and working at ADFA. It is a reasonably intense training period with very little personal time. You will be expected to work long hours and be should be prepared to make a rapid transition from being a civilian, to becoming a member of the ADF. 2 7. As a part of this transition your lessons will include drill (marching), physical training, communal living and uniform maintenance, first aid, weapons training and introductory field training. Life Skills 8. Your arrival at ADFA may be the first occasion you have lived away from home. The transition to Academy life will be much easier if you come equipped with a number of life skills. You will be required to do your own washing and ironing. You will also be required to keep your room clean and take part in cleaning of common bathroom and laundry facilities that you will share with others, as well as the cleaning of the passageways and other common areas in your accommodation building. None of these activities will be particularly onerous; however they will be much easier for you if you arrive at ADFA with some understanding of the basics – such as how to do your laundry, and how to use an iron and vacuum cleaner. Married/De-facto Cadets 9. During your first six weeks at ADFA (YOFT) all midshipmen and officer cadets, including those who are married or de-facto, are accommodated at the Academy. Those midshipmen and officer cadets who are married or de-facto will have the relocation of their family, and removal of their personal effects organised during this time with an arrival date immediately following the completion of the first six weeks (YOFT). 10. There is certain documentation you will need to submit to enable the recognition of your marriage or de-facto relationship, (please see annex C). If you would like to discuss this further prior to your arrival at ADFA please do not hesitate to contact the Academy Duty Officer (ADO) on 0418 413 035. Private Vehicles 11. Unless you are a current serving member of the ADF, do not drive your motor vehicle to ADFA, as you will not require it during your first six weeks. If you own a motor vehicle, you may apply to have it brought to ADFA at public expense at a later date. However you must provide proof that you owned that vehicle at the time of joining the ADF. Dress 12. On arrival at ADFA you should be dressed in neat attire. The following are the minimum dress standards expected: a. Males. A long sleeved collared shirt, tie, (coat optional), tailored trousers and leather shoes. b. Females. A long or short sleeved blouse and slacks or skirt, no shorter than knee length, where free movement (for marching) is appropriate. Females are to wear practical low heeled leather shoes. There is a considerable amount of walking involved on induction day and even the lowest heels tire the feet and are a hazard on the paving around ADFA. 3 c. You are also reminded to bring sleepwear appropriate for a mixed gender environment. Haircuts, Jewellery and Make-up 13. You are required to arrive at ADFA with neat, clean and tidy hair, of a single and natural colour. Females are required to put their hair up in a braid or bun, or to have their hair cut so that it does not touch the bottom of a buttoned shirt collar. To assist in grooming, females should bring hair spray, plain bobby pins, comb clips and bun nets, similar in colour to their hair. Scrunchies and other accessories are not to be worn in uniform. You will need at least four weeks of hair supplies for the YOFT period. 14. Males are required to have their hair cut in a short back and sides, with no unusual length on the top (college cut). The male haircut is to be tapered towards the neckline and is not to cover the ears, or touch or overhang the shirt collar. The neck is to be clean shaven. All personnel who do not meet these standards will be given a haircut upon arrival, at Commonwealth expense. All males’ faces are to be clean shaven on arrival. You will be required to bring at least four weeks of shaving gear with you when you arrive. Examples of appropriate haircuts for males and females are at annex B. 15. Body piercing is forbidden, however females may wear one set of discreet pierced earrings. Makeup (if worn) should be discreet and in good taste. Further information regarding haircuts or the wearing of jewellery and make-up while in uniform will be provided following your arrival at ADFA. Personal Effects 16. You are to bring with you adequate supplies of civilian clothing, underwear, hosiery, socks, sleepwear and toiletries. Females should bring enough sanitary and depilatory products to last four weeks. You will be required to wear appropriate civilian clothing for the first week, whilst you are fitted for uniforms. Other items you should bring are listed at annex C. Do not bring any bicycles or other large equipment (eg golf clubs, large stereo equipment, snowboards etc) with you in the first six weeks. You will be entitled to a removal of equipment at public expense from your home location to ADFA following the completion of your initial training. This will provide the opportunity for larger items to be brought to ADFA. If you require such a removal, you need to complete the removal forms which can be found at annex D along with some instructions. Inoculations 17. Midshipmen and officer cadets will receive a series of inoculations at ADFA, so it is advisable to bring proof of any previous inoculations with you. I strongly recommend that you bring all vaccination records with you. This includes childhood schedules as well as overseas vaccination cards. If you do not bring records, you will be required to receive the full course of military vaccines. Please also ascertain, prior to arrival, whether you have had chickenpox as a child. If you have proof of your blood group, a copy of this would be welcomed. All of these records will be returned to you during the first six weeks. 4 Personal Computers 18. Do not arrive at ADFA with a personal or laptop computers. If you do choose to bring a laptop it will be taken from you, and securely stored for the duration of initial training. Computers will not be required until the start of tertiary study in early March. Each room has provision for a computer to be connected to the University network and internet. There will be no access to the internet in the first six weeks of training due to the intensity of the YOFT period; however, you may choose to have your computer delivered with your personal effects at the completion of initial training.(please see annex G for University and ADF specifications for computers). Telephones 19. Midshipmen and officer cadets will have their mobile phone secured during the day, as they are not to be used outside dedicated ‘call home’ hours. Ensure you have sufficient credit or prepaid cards to cover a four week period. Ensure your families have the ADFA telephone number for contact in case of an emergency. Squadron staff also have the option of allowing use of their work phones should an urgent need arise. Accommodation 20. At ADFA you will be provided with your own private and secure room. These rooms are comfortable and have ample shelf and cupboard space. Four rooms are grouped in a corridor with a shared laundry (washing machine and dryer) and bathroom (toilet, shower, washbasin and mirror). You will be responsible for cleaning your room and sharing the cleaning of the common areas with your peers. Cleaning equipment is supplied. Accommodation rooms, bathrooms and laundries are inspected regularly for cleanliness and neatness by ADFA staff. Each accommodation block has three floors of 16 rooms with a central recreation room furnished with a television, DVD player, sound system, lounge chairs, and a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator. The consumption and storage of alcohol in the accommodation blocks at any time is strictly prohibited. 21. You will be accommodated in a Tri-Service (i.e. Navy, Army and Air Force) and mixed gender environment at ADFA. Visitors 22. Only in exceptional circumstances will midshipmen and officer cadets be permitted to receive visitors during programmed working hours or sports periods. For reasons of welfare and security, visitors are not permitted to enter the accommodation blocks without appropriate authorisation from respective Divisional Officers (DO), or the Academy Duty Officer (ADO) outside working hours. No visitors are permitted during the YOFT period. Foster Family Scheme 23. This scheme recruits ‘foster families’ in the Canberra area who are willing to ‘adopt’ a midshipmen or officer cadet. The scheme is intended to assist first-year midshipmen and officer cadets to settle in to the Academy away from their normal 5 family environment. First-year midshipmen and officer cadets may apply to be allocated a family during their first weeks at ADFA. The scheme is voluntary for Australian midshipmen and officer cadets and strongly encouraged for foreign cadets. Academy Cadets Mess (ACM) 24. The ACM comprises food preparation areas, dining areas, recreation rooms, a bar, coffee lounge and dry cleaning services. Although the ACM bar is open for use by all ADFA midshipmen and officer cadets, the purchase or consumption of alcoholic beverages in the ACM by midshipmen and officer cadets, guests and other visitors less than 18 years of age is prohibited. You will not be permitted to consume alcohol during YOFT due to the intensity and tempo of training. 25. As a member of the ACM, you will be required to pay a monthly membership fee of $15.00, which covers the day-to-day administration costs of the ACM.

Sport and physical training play an important part in Service life. It is essential that you arrive at ADFA with a good base level of fitness, otherwise you will be at a greater risk of injury that could affect your ability to complete your military training. Before you arrive at ADFA, you are strongly encouraged to do some form of endurance training, such as taking long walks (40 – 60 minutes) and/ or bushwalking, getting used to being on your feet for extended periods and building up lower leg muscles. This kind of training should help prepare you for standing, running, walking, marching and drill movements. A good pair of running shoes, that are not worn out, are required (see annex C). Good eating habits are also essential, especially eating breakfast. Fatigue can become a big factor during the first six weeks, therefore learning how to cope with the effects of fatigue would be beneficial. A suggested program is included on the ADFA website www.unsw.adfa.edu.au. If you do not have access to the internet please contact Warrant Officer Physical Training Instructor (WOPTI), WO2 Mark Davis, Ph. 02 6268 8459 to obtain a copy. 27. One of the primary aims of physical training at ADFA is to educate you in the value of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, physical training promotes teamwork and ensures that you develop and maintain the level of fitness that will enable you to pass your individual single-Service fitness test, which is an ADFA graduation requirement. Muscular strength, muscular endurance and cardio- respiratory endurance are the main components of the fitness tests. You will also undergo a swim test to establish individual swimming competency. Sports at ADFA 28. ADFA offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor sporting facilities, including an over water obstacle course, outdoor climbing wall, an abseiling point and caters for a wide range of team and individual sports. Sports available at ADFA include: Athletics Basketball Australian Rules Football (men & women) Cricket (including indoor) Netball (ladies & mixed) Hockey Rowing Rugby Union (men & women) Triathlon Soccer Volleyball Touch Football Rugby League Water polo Squash Swimming Fencing Tennis Sailing Dragon Boating 7 UNSW@ADFA INFORMATION FOR NEW UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS Accept Online – Student ID number and UNIPass password 29. Students, when they ‘accept’ their UNSW offer, are issued with a student identification number (eg z1234567) and generated a unique UNIPass password. You MUST write these two items down and bring them to the “New Enrolment Session” (see paragraph 28 b). This information is ESSENTIAL to enable access to the web portal myUNSW to complete enrolment into courses and other class activities, such as tutorials and/or laboratory classes. Information Sessions 30. The University of New South Wales at ADFA (UNSW@ADFA) will be conducting three information sessions before classes commence in 2011. These sessions are compulsory for all new undergraduate students. For RAAF officer cadets, you are to ensure that you enrol in the degree which was offered by your parent service. You cannot alter your degree without military approval. 31. There will be three separate information sessions conducted by UNSW@ADFA staff during YOFT. They are outlined below: a. A credit application session will be conducted on Tuesday 1 February 2011. Information is provided below on what you must bring to this session. Once you have submitted your application, the relevant Undergraduate Coordinator will assess your application in preparation for enrolment. b. A new enrolment session will be conducted on Friday 11 February 2011. During this session you will be welcomed into the UNSW@ADFA community, attend academic briefings, including presentations specific to your degree, have the opportunity to discuss your enrolment with UNSW@ADFA staff and complete your online enrolment in your courses and tutorials and/or laboratory classes. Engineering and Technology students will also be given a tour of laboratories and facilities. Students who have applied for credit can discuss with the relevant Undergraduate Coordinator the outcomes of their application and seek advice on enrolment. c.

Family members and friends are most welcome to attend this parade, and a separate letter of invitation will be sent out during YOFT to your nominated next of kin. Local area leave will be granted to allow midshipmen and officer cadets to be with their families for part of this weekend. Further details about CDF Parade will be placed on the ADFA web page closer to the event date. Studying at ADFA 35. The academic year is divided into two sessions totalling 32 weeks. The remainder of the year is allocated to military training, leave, academic field trips, military tours and excursions, adventurous training, study and examination preparation. The first academic session will begin on 28 February 2011. Please refer to the ADFA website on the internet for further information. 36. At ADFA you will undertake a three-year program of military training, designed to provide you with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for your integration into Service life. Your military training at ADFA will involve: a. Academy Military Education and Training (AMET). This training is common to all three Services, and is undertaken by all midshipmen and officer cadets at ADFA. Subjects studied during AMET include leadership and management skills, drill and ceremonial, defence studies, weapon training, military law, mess customs and etiquette, an oral and written communications program, physical and recreational training, stress management, first aid and health, and alcohol and drug awareness. AMET occurs both during and outside the academic sessions. b. Single Service Training (SST). This training addresses the specific needs of each Service and separate programs are run for the Army, Navy and Air Force. SST is normally conducted outside the academic sessions. SST occurs twice each year for all midshipmen and officer cadets. First- year midshipmen and officer cadets undertake Single Service Training 9 during July and November/December. During Single Service Training, midshipmen and officer cadets are employed by their respective Services exposing them to, and providing an insight into, single-service environments. Single Service Training is conducted at a variety of Navy, Army and Air Force training establishments and operational units/ships. Daily Routine during YOFT 37. During the first six weeks (YOFT) the daily routine (Monday – Sunday) is typically: a. Reveille (awaken) 0600 h; b. Roll call and cleaning ablutions from 0600 h; c. Physical Training 0630 h to 0710 h d. Breakfast is available between 0600- 0800 h; e. Military training are divided into fourteen 40 minute lessons from 0810h to 2130 h. Daily Routine at ADFA 39.

Return of Service Obligation 41. Training at ADFA attracts a Return of Service Obligation (ROSO). As an officer cadet sponsored through ADFA, after graduation you will complete a ROSO which guarantees employment for a period of time in the Australian Defence Force (ADF). As a general rule, your minimum ROSO is the number of years the ADF has paid for you to complete training, plus one year. The ROSO is based on the investment which Defence makes in each of its ADFA trainees, including covering education costs, HECS, textbooks, salaries and subsidised clothing and housing. There is an expectation that this investment will be repaid by completion of the ROSO. This will be explained in more detail on your arrival at ADFA. 10 Resignations 42. After leaving home and your family and friends, it is recognised that it does take time to adjust to military life at the Academy. To give a reasonable period of time for adjustment, midshipmen and officer cadets are not permitted to resign during the first five weeks. This time also allows you to make a well-informed decision regarding resignation from ADFA. Local Leave 43. Local area leave (known as short leave) at ADFA is managed via a tiered system. Under this system, midshipmen and officer cadets may take local leave in the Canberra area on approved days when not required for duty. This leave is restricted in First Year. There is no local leave from Monday through to Thursday for First Year midshipmen and officer cadets, during first session 2011. Your Divisional staff may, however, grant additional leave on request. On weekends, midshipmen and officer cadets under the age of 18 may only stay out beyond midnight if they are staying at an address pre-approved by their parents. Please be aware there will be no local leave approved during the first six weeks (YOFT). Recreational Leave 44. You may be granted four to five weeks of leave during the Christmas and New Year break, and you may be entitled to short leave during the Easter period. For single members, the Commonwealth provides two free trips per year to your nominated NOK address. The first opportunity for an extended period of leave normally occurs at Easter. Applications for Easter free travel (at Commonwealth expense) will be initiated on arrival at ADFA, depending on your academic commitments. You may also have the opportunity to take leave in May. Most cadets preserve their second entitlement to free travel until the Christmas leave period. Emergency Contact 45. ADFA has a 24 hour duty system which parents may contact if there is an urgent requirement to contact a midshipman, officer cadet or staff member after hours. The Academy Duty Officer (ADO) number is (02) 6268 8574 or 0418 413 035. For routine inquiries, parents may call the Executive Duty Officer (XDO) on 0417 477 858. Personal Administration 46.

The spiritual support and personal development of midshipmen and officer cadets and staff are the Chaplains’ priorities. The Chaplains are available at all times to provide confidential pastoral care and ministry to midshipmen, officer cadets and staff. 56. Spiritual and personal development is encouraged through non- denominational services at ADFA, and on Sunday by worship at the ANZAC Memorial Chapel of St Paul in nearby Duntroon. Several Sunday church services are scheduled for those midshipmen and officer cadets wishing to attend them during YOFT. Weekday services are also available in the smaller ADFA chapel following the completion of YOFT. Voluntary Bible studies and a Sunday evening fellowship are also conducted.

C-3 ANNEX D TO JOINING INSTRUCTION NOV 10 FIRST YEAR REMOVALS 1. First Year members are entitled to a removal from home to ADFA at Commonwealth expense following their initial six weeks of training. The removal uplift will take effect sometime between the end of February and early March 2011. Delivery of items to ADFA will occur on 5 March 2011. 2. This is your only chance to bring items from home to ADFA at Commonwealth expense. Removals for your posting following graduation will only consist of items that are at ADFA or those held in storage. If you choose not to have your items removed at this time, it will be your responsibility to move the items at a later stage with no compensation/ reimbursement from Defence. 3. You are only entitled to a removal from the address you were living prior to joining ADFA. Items will only be picked up from one location. All items for uplift are to be listed in an inventory; if they are not listed then they will not be uplifted. 4. There are two types of inventories, Inventory A for delivery to ADFA and Inventory B to be placed into storage for the duration of your stay at ADFA (this does not include motor vehicles). Storage items will be held in store at Commonwealth expense until you request them to be delivered. This is normally used for members with household furniture. Inventory A 5. This inventory is to be filled out for all items to be delivered to your room on 5 March 2011. This will include items such as push bikes, surfboards, clothing, televisions, stereos etc. Clothing is to be listed per box (eg 3 x boxes clothing). They are classed as items packed by owner and will need to be packed by your parents (boxes will be provided by the removalist and delivered to your home address a couple of days prior to uplift). 6. All other items must be packed by the removalist. Please ensure that only clothing is packed by your parents otherwise there will be no compensation for broken or damaged items. Inventory B 7. This inventory is for all items that will not fit into your room at ADFA that must be removed (eg house contents, beds, furniture etc). Once these items are placed in store you cannot remove them unless you recall all the items from storage. These items will all be packed by the removalist. Motor Vehicles 8. Motor vehicles will be freighted from your home address to ADFA and delivered on 5 March 2011. If you require your vehicle to be freighted, complete the Request for Relocation of Motor Vehicles. All Motor Vehicles/ Motor bikes are to be driveable and registered. 9. These vehicles are not covered for transit insurance, so check with your insurance company and, if necessary, take out transit cover. Transit coverage is also available from the transit company on day of pick up of vehicle with the cost approximately $100.00. 10. Members will have the opportunity to drive their vehicle from their home location to ADFA, in their first break, however this may not be until mid-year. Members who will be driving their vehicles are not to complete the Request for Relocation of Motor Vehicle, but will complete another form when they arrive at ADFA. 11. Parents who choose to bring a member’s vehicle to ADFA on the CDF Parade weekend or at a later date will not be compensated or reimbursed for expenses. Completion of inventory proforma 12.

This document is designed to give new midshipmen and officer cadets joining ADFA a realistic view of military and Academy life. It will hopefully answer most of the questions you have about starting what I promise you will be a different but exciting career. When I joined the ADF I was 17 and a quiet country girl with no idea what living away from home was like. Leaving home, starting university and a new job all on your first day at ADFA can be completely overwhelming. However once the shock wears off and you settle into Academy life ADFA becomes a place where you can really develop yourself whilst having a lot of fun. I hope this document is useful in covering the aspects that you need to know about ADFA. The Organisation of ADFA 2. ADFA is the joint training institution for officers of the ADF. It is unique in that it provides trainees with a university degree and military training. The university side of ADFA is run by the University of NSW and within the Academy it is called ‘UNSW@ADFA’. 3. ADFA aims, over a period of three years, to produce professional and competent officers with a balanced and liberal education for the three services: Navy, Army and Air Force. 4. Each year group at ADFA is divided into two squadrons (SQNs) which are tri- service. These SQN’s are in turn divided into four divisions (Divs) of around 45 midshipmen and officer cadets who live together in one building. Each division is allocated one Divisional Officer and one Divisional Senior Non Commissioned Officer to supervise and assist them with life at ADFA. Military Life 5. ADFA is first and foremost a military institution and as such midshipmen and officer cadets are expected to behave in a manner befitting a military member. There are several key aspects of military life which may come as a shock when first joining the military. 6. Uniform. All military members are required to wear and maintain their issued uniforms. ADFA members wear the uniform of their parent service whilst at the Academy in accordance with their individual service rules and regulations. Cadets are issued their uniform during the first days of YOFT. 7. Discipline. All military members are to maintain a high level of self-discipline which is necessary for the nature of their job. This includes following lawful orders and the rules and regulations which may limit how cadets behave. 8. Leave. Leave policies in place in first year limit how often cadets may leave the Academy during the week. These policies are in place to allow staff to monitor the initial year of training with cadets, to ensure cadets’ safety and to allow cadets to effectively adjust to military life and living away from home. These restrictions relax as cadets progress through the Academy; reflecting the growing trust in cadets by the staff. ADFA is, however, by no means a boot camp; cadets are encouraged to grow and gain responsibility across their time with the aim of producing responsible junior officers. Leave restrictions are one of the sets of guidelines put in place to facilitate that process. 9. DFDA. All military members are subject to the Defence Force Discipline Act (DFDA). This Act provides the laws which regulate the military environment. These are designed to reflect and regulate the unique requirements of military life and ensure military discipline is enforced, and you will be subject to these laws from the time you are appointed into your Service. You will also remain subject to the normal laws of the Commonwealth and states while you serve in the ADF. You should be reassured that while the DFDA can be strict on some issues, its laws are logical, reasonable and are fairly applied. You will receive training at ADFA on these laws and your obligations under them. 10. Drugs. The ADF has a zero tolerance policy in relation to drug use. Any use of illegal drugs will result in discharge from the military and the Academy. 11. Saluting. Part of military discipline is the paying of respects to officers as they hold a Queen’s commission. This is done through the saluting of officers in uniform and is a practice implemented across most of the Academy. Some areas are designated non-saluting areas to allow all ranks to relax; these areas include the ADFA Café precinct. Daily Life at ADFA 12. The first six weeks of ADFA form the initial induction into military and ADFA life; called Year One Familiarisation Training (YOFT). After this period, first year cadets integrate into Academy life and commence attending academic studies in their selected degree streams. Unlike normal university life, cadets at ADFA are paid to study for their degrees; this means that all academic and military classes are compulsory. Cadets can face disciplinary action for missing their work duties if they do not attend class. F-2 13. Routine. Whilst passing your degree is the main priority at ADFA, each Year group will also undertake two blocks of Academic and Military Education and Training (AMET) which provides the military side of training. This includes: a. Drill. Cadets are expected to move around the Academy in a military manner. Drill facilitates the movement of military personnel within military bases, and it inculcates self discipline, confidence and helps develop a command presence. Cadets will undertake two hours drill practice per week to prepare for Academy parades and drill examinations. Drill competency is a graduation requirement. b. Inspections. During working hours from 0700 h – 1700 h cadet’s rooms are expected to be kept in inspection order. This assists in maintaining a clean and productive communal living environment, and in promoting self organisation. Rooms will be checked formally at the commencement of each week by the divisional staff. c. Weapons Training. Due to the nature of their profession all military members will be trained in the use of ADF service weapons. This will include the firing of live ammunition on a weapons range, and such training and range practices are compulsory for graduation. Whilst cadets will not be deployed during their time at ADFA, the requirement to be trained on weapons is directly related to the requirement for all military members to be combat ready before they take up their full duties as officers in their Service. d. Physical Fitness. The military is a physically demanding job. All cadets at ADFA are expected to be able to pass their single service fitness requirements at all times throughout their time at ADFA and ADF careers. Physical Training (PT) is conducted for at least 3 hours per week and cadets are expected to train to sustain fitness outside these times. The gymnasium facilities at ADFA are more than adequate to enable cadets to achieve fitness goals. e. Defence Studies. Cadets are educated and exposed to all aspects of military organisation and strategy to prepare them for their careers as officers in the ADF. f. Military Communications. Cadets undertake a program to develop and hone their written and oral communications skills, especially in the Defence environment. F-3 14. Sports. Cadets are encouraged to participate in at least one sporting activity at the Academy in order to improve their skills and fitness as well as interact with a range of other years and staff in a social environment. Once a cadet signs up for a sport, attendance at training and matches is compulsory. Sports training is conducted after hours generally on the Academy precinct. Sports played at ADFA include: AFL, Rugby, Basketball, Netball, Soccer, Rowing, Dragon Boating, Hockey, Touch Football, Volleyball, and Cricket. 15. Voluntary Extra-Curricular Activities (VECAs). Cadets also have the opportunity to participate in voluntary groups in areas other than sport. These may include: debating, band, stage production, fencing, aviation or maritime interest group, sailing, swimming, community service and numerous others. 16. Both sports and VECAs allow cadets to undertake leadership roles within the clubs to develop their skills as an officer. Living at ADFA 17. Living away from home. Many cadets joining ADFA are leaving home for the first time. This can be a shock to any young adult. First year cadets are offered support and guidance to help them adapt to living away from home. This includes: military chaplains and psychologists, dedicated squadron and divisional staff and of course second and third year cadets at the Academy. 18. Sponsor Families. ADFA also runs a sponsor family program which pairs new midshipmen/officer cadets with responsible ADF families from Canberra. This voluntary program offers cadets the opportunity for a home away from home, a place to go to when the pressures of ADFA feel overwhelming or merely another mentor to provide advice on all aspects of military life. All midshipmen and officer cadets are encouraged to take part in this program as it can provide long term benefits; there are no obligations associated with the program and cadets may spend as little or as much time with their sponsor families as they desire. Cadets will be offered the opportunity to participate in this program during YOFT. 19. Privacy. The Privacy Act contains provisions which limit the ability of ADFA staff to disclose personal information about midshipmen or officer cadets without prior consent. This means that without the consent of the cadet the staff may not disclose any information about the cadet to their parents or other family members; this applies to cadets aged under 18 as well. However, midshipmen and cadets are encouraged to maintain frequent contact with their families when they reach ADFA as the ADF recognises the important role that families will continue to play in their lives even after they arrive at ADFA. Nonetheless, some parents may at first feel as though they are getting little contact with their son or daughter, this is often a symptom of the high tempo of ADFA life. F-4 20. Notwithstanding the privacy restrictions mentioned above, if parents or guardians have any concerns about a cadet at ADFA they should not hesitate to contact the cadet’s divisional staff or the ADFA Duty Officer. These calls will always be taken. 21. Phones during YOFT. There are restrictions placed on the use of phones and the internet during the initial training period. This is designed to allow cadets to focus on their training while they integrate into military and Academy life. After the initial few weeks cadets are given full access to phones and email, and these early restrictions are not designed to isolate cadets. If during YOFT cadets feel they need to contact their families they can ask their staff at any time and it will be facilitated. 22. Professional Behaviour. Whilst it is expected that friendships, and indeed long lasting ones, will form at the Academy, during the day the people with whom you will live are your work colleagues. It is therefore expected that regardless of personal situations all cadets treat each other with professionalism and respect as they would in any workplace. 23. Relationships. ADFA recognises that three years is a long time to spend in a training environment and as such relationships will inevitably form during this time. ADFA does not try to stop this. There are, however, several rules in place to ensure a professional environment for all living at the Academy. Relationships are not allowed during the initial three month training period. After this period they are permitted provided that a professional work manner is sustained, and cadets do not engage in intimate behaviour in uniform, within the Academy, or when on duty. 24. Health. Cadets are provided with health care from the ADF. ADFA and RMC share the Duntroon Health Centre (DHC) which is located adjacent to the Academy and provides routine and emergency health care for all military members. All members undergo yearly medical review to ensure their continued health and ability to perform their job. 25. Religion. All military members are encouraged to participate in the observance of any religious worship they choose. ADFA has three service chaplains who are available to assist with any spiritual and personal development, regardless of religious denomination. The ANZAC Memorial Chapel at Duntroon conducts regular church services which cadets are free to attend. The ADFA Chaplains will also assist cadets to contact groups of their own religious denomination outside the Academy if desired. The Chaplains also provide a counselling and pastoral service to all staff, cadets and their families. 26. Compulsory attendance at church services is required for some events that have a religious, but non-denominational element such as: ANZAC Day, CDF Parade Family Weekend, and Graduation Week. F-5 Expectations of Officers within the ADF and whilst at ADFA 27. ADFA cadets and staff are expected to espouse the values of the Academy and indeed the wider Australian community. The ADFA values are: a. Be Honest, b. Give Everyone a Fair Go, c. Respect Others, and d. Do Your Best. 28. These values go hand in hand with the qualities that midshipmen and officer cadets are assessed on throughout their time at ADFA. These officer qualities hold midshipmen and officer cadets to a high standard of behaviour and character which prepares them to be professional officers able to lead their fellow ADF members. These qualities are: a. Adaptability – the ability to adjust confidently to changing situations under normal or stressful conditions; b. Initiative – the ability to positively influence, by instigating action, events to achieve goals beyond those called for; c. Integrity – the ability to separate right from wrong and act accordingly; d. Determination – the ability to apply oneself to a purpose and be resolute in the pursuit of personal goals and the achievement of designated tasks; and e. Professionalism – the ability to set and maintain the high standards expected of officers in the ADF. 29. I wish you all the best with life at ADFA and your ADF careers. The friendships you make and the lessons you learn in your initial training will stand you in good stead for the rest of your time in the ADF and beyond. There will be high points and indeed lessons learnt from mistakes, but overall ADFA is a rewarding experience particularly if you involve yourself as much as possible in all aspects of Academy life. Remember to enjoy your time at ADFA as very soon it will be over and you will not want to leave!
