On Saturday 3rd September, Broxburn Academy pupil Cpl Natalie Laird, won the award of Most Inspirational Army Cadet in Scotland 2022 and was able to collect her award during a ceremony at Edinburgh Castle.  Everyone within the Broxburn Academy community is so proud of Natalie both for this achievement and for being a fantastic ambassador.  During the night Natalie gave a speech in the Great Hall, which was a high point of the "Celebrating the Cadet Experience" event.  

Natalie has kindly given us permission for us to share her speech, "My Life as an Army Cadet", which can be downloaded below.
