Australian Army Cadets is the largest youth training organisation in Australia and aims to train young people in skills of leadership, discipline, service and generally being able to look after themselves in many different types of circumstances. This training is done in a military setting in the style of the Australia Army.

The cadet program at Monivae adds greatly to the rich flavour and diversity of educational opportunities the school has to offer. In cadets the motto is "Courage, Initiative, Teamwork". All cadets and staff involved in the PCC 1/10 had a very enjoyable and enriching experience.
