Sunday 24 October is regular Google Classroom training.
A reminder: The Divisional Classrooms will be used to post the weekly challenge questions for the Inter-Divisional Competition. Cadets are highly encouraged to participate in each weekly challenge question. Each week the Division having the most correct answers will be awarded a point. The Division accumulating the most points for all of the weekly challenge questions will win the weekly challenge portion of the Inter-Divisional Competition. The Division having the most points in the Inter-Divisional Competition will be awarded the Cock of the Walk (best Division).
Halloween Costume Contest
There will be a Halloween costume contest for Kingsmill cadets. Cadets are encouraged to dress up in an appropriate costume and submit a photo of them in their costume to our Google Classroom. Details on uploading photos will be provided on Google Classroom. Depending on the number of entries there will be one or more prizes. The winner or winners will be announced on our training day of 31 October. Once again, further details to be provided. Cadets are to submit their photos on or before Tuesday 26 October.
Remembrance Day Video: All cadets are encouraged to submit a short video (not more than 30 seconds) of what Remembrance Day means to them. In the video, cadets may mention how a personal experience has affected their understanding of the importance of Remembrance Day (perhaps a family member who served or a cadet's participation in a Remembrance Day parade). The videos from all participating cadets will be put together in a video collage that will be shown sometime before Remembrance Day. The video can be recorded by any means i.e. phone, camera, or video camera. Instructions will soon be provided in our Google Classrooms on how to upload the video. Cadets are to be in uniform in the video - for those without a uniform please wear a white shirt/dark pants.
The deadline for submitting a video is Saturday 30 October. Although submitting a video is not mandatory cadets are encouraged to submit a video.
Lest we forget.

Tag Days (pre-COVID) were part of-person fundraising activities for the Navy League of Canada Ottawa Branch (NLOB). As a result of COVID Tag Days have been put on hold for the foreseeable future. The NLOB supports NLCC Vice Admiral Kingsmill's training program in a wide range of ways including, but not limited to, uniforms, recreational and educational trips, equipment for training, and the purchase of awards to recognize Kingsmill cadets' achievements. The Navy League of Canada Ontario Division has partnered with "Micharity" to organize a structured process to collect and distribute donations to the Branch of your choice and send charitable receipts immediately. Please consider making an online donation to our sponsoring Branch (NLOB) in support of cadet activities in our community. To donate to the NLOB, the NLOB has set up a link on their home page at www.ottawanavyleague.org, or the link can be directly accessed by clicking HERE. Donations using this link will be forwarded from the Ontario Division to the Ottawa Branch. However, please include a dedication on the form to the "Ottawa Branch" with the subject "Donation" to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help the NLOB monitor it locally. Your generous donations will have a huge impact on helping us deliver a youth program that is second to none and help young Canadians develop into our leaders of tomorrow. Thank you!
Private Kingsmill Facebook Group:
A private Facebook group has been created to provide a further means of reaching out and disseminating information to cadets and parents in this period of isolation. Activities for cadets will be posted on the Group page. Joining the private Facebook group is optional and not mandatory. All information regarding training etc. will continue to be disseminated through the Kingsmill Newsletter and website. If you wish to join the private group search on Facebook under "Groups" using "NLCC Vice Admiral Kingsmill". You will see two groups - our Group is the private group.
