The Cadet Formal

The Cadet Formal is the St. Andrew's College Prom and is organized and run by the Cadet Officers. It is normally held in the evening of the Annual Cadet Review and is the social event which celebrates the conclusion of the cadet year in a grand fashion.

Cadets attend in their scarlet dress uniforms. The evening commences with a formal receiving line of the senior cadets and officers, followed by dinner and then the dance itself. 

Check our Corps Calendar for the date of the next Cadet Formal.

The Cadet Corps Dance
From the Midsummer 1946 Review

"At nine o'clock on Friday May 17th, the orchestra of Bobby Gimby started to play, to begin the school's annual "At Home".

The dining room was converted into a dance hall, and was magnificently decorated by Schofield, Howson, Murrell, and others. Messes were in Flavelle House.

The announcing was done by Shirley I. On the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. Ketchum, Captain and Mrs. Wright and Cadet Captain Errington.

A number of old boys recently out of the armed forces attended. There were visiting officers from Upper Canada College, Bishop Ridley College, University of Toronto Schools, De La Salle, and Forest Hill Village High School.

The orchestra's feature of the evening was the Parade of Bands staring their leader on the trumpet. The traditional Rye-Waltz was missed by the old boys.

The time flew by and when The King was played, it was to the great regret of all."
