The 48th Highlander Army Cadet Corps

The 48 Highlander Army Cadet Corps is affiliated with and sponsored by the 48th Highlanders of Canada. Although, our corps is affiliated with the regiment, the youth members who join the group are not members of the Department of National Defence. Our cadet corps is part of the cadet organization, which is a national program for youth between 12 to 18 years of age who want to make new friends while participating in fun and challenging activities. Overall, the cadet program promotes teamwork, leadership and citizenship. In addition, it helps youth members to increase their self-confidence and physical fitness.

As part of the aim of the cadet program our goal is to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate the interest of youth in the Canadian Forces.

142 St. Andrew's College Highland Cadet Corps

St. Andrew's is home to Canada's second largest Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps. Established in 1905, the #142 St. Andrew's College Highland Cadet Corps is now a credit earning, multi-year leadership program, but still culminates in an annual inspection. The school's cadet corps is also affiliated with the 48th Highlanders of Canada, retaining the same motto ("Dileas Gu Brath" - "Faithful Forever") as well as uniform (scarlet tunic and Modern Gordon tartan). In 2005, the centennial year, the Corps was granted the Freedom of the City of Aurora.

The Pipes and Drums Band is an integral part of the St. Andrew's College Highland Cadet Corps and one of its best known elements. The primary responsibility of the Pipe Band is to provide music for the Battalion when it is on the march. In this role the Band will be front and centre at the Annual Church Parade, the Headmaster's Parade and the Annual Inspection in May.
