As most do every New Years, people make resolutions and try to break old habits. January is definitely the month for a new beginning. Here at 540 Sqn, we are also turning a new leaf.
While most were on vacation during the weeks and days leading up to Christmas and New Years, relaxing at home in their pajamas or soaking up the sun on a nice tropical beach, our website admin OCdt Chander was hard at work with Mr. Samayoa and Ms. Chen making sure that 540 Sqn would be ready for it’s fresh start in 2018.
Launched on January 6th, promptly at 5:40 pm, our new website has received a much needed face lift and has been turbocharged with new content for both cadets and parents! Some of the new content includes:
- Our new cadet run 540 Sqn blog – Hawk Talk
- A new cadet dashboard – the replacement for the announcements page
- A breakdown of all the qualifications cadets can obtain
- A list of previous recognition and awards that 540 Sqn cadets have received
- A parent handbook containing a central list of compiled FAQs
- And lots more!
With so many new features, you will just have to take a look yourself and explore the entire website to see all of our new improvements, photos, and even some videos.
With the initial launch of our website back in 2006, it has definitely come a long way. Screenshots of the original design have coincidentally disappeared, but up above you can see how the design has evolved over the last 7 years.
Many ask us how we do it, how our website is always looking fresh and shiny. The answer is simple; it is powered by the polish of kiwis.
