With the continued expansion of the RoyallNew Zealand Air Force and the consequent increase in the number of personnel, the provision of. further educational facilities for the training and the general education of airmen and airwomen has become a matter of ever-growing importance. Already much had been done, but the Government has decided to strengthen R.N.Z.A.F. educational services still further. Announcing this today, the Minister of Defence (Mr. Jones) stated that the educational needs of the Air Force now required greater attention than ever, and he considered it desirable that the present Director of Educational Services, Wing Commander E. Caradus, who was also acting in a dual
capacity as chief inspector of secondary schools, should devote his whole attention to the Air Force. "I have therefore felt it necessary to ask the Minister of Education to relieve Wing Commander Caradus of his duties as chief inspector of secondary schools," said Mr. Jones. "To this the Minister of Education has agreed, and Wing Commander Caradus will be placed on leave from the Education Department for the duration of the war." The Minister also said that New -Zealand's system of pre-entry training, not only for air crew but also for ground personnel, had always been given the greatest attention. It had been in operation since a few months after the outbreak of war, with such great success that other Empire countries had adopted it. Wing Commander Caradus has been in charge of the scheme since 1939.
