Passing off the Square

Les élèves-officiers du CMR participent à la cérémonie du « Passing Off the Square »

The Class of 2022 took part in the First Year Orientation Program (FYOP) ceremony known as “Passing Off the Square” this Friday evening. This rite-of-passage event is a mid-way test of the knowledge and skills First Years students have learned during FYOP. They are first required to perform a drill routine with a peer that needs to be executed with perfection. One missed step or one person out of line with the other means they have to restart. If they succeed in completing their drill routine, they must then answer a question asked by one of the top-five officer cadets who lead the Cadet Wing. Once again, if they fail to answer correctly, they must restart. The questions are either about “College Knowledge,” such as names of buildings around the College, historic facts about RMC, the names of illustrious graduates, or current leaders at the institution. Congratulations to the First Years on making it to this point of FYOP! Only one week left before they officially become part of the Cadet Wing.

Harrier Race

Les coureurs participent à la course Harrier

This Saturday morning, RMC staff and students took part in a five-kilometre race known as the Harrier Race, which begins on RMC’s historic Parade Square and takes runners up and down Fort Henry Drive, around Point Frederick and back to the Parade Square. This event is meant for fun and competition. The highest performing officer cadets score points for their respective squadrons, while others can have fun running with the banners and costumes of the various squadrons.
