Can anyone identify this? It may be a school button.

Goulburn High School
This may be a cadet button. Can anyone confirm this?
The first public (government) High School in Goulburn started in 1883 but failed due to low attendances and possibly high running costs. It also had to compete with several private high schools in the district.
The High School was re-established in 1913 from an existing public secondary school that provided only a two year course, in the Bourke Street Technical Building. A cadet corps was established by 1914.
In 1927 a newly built school building was opened in Goldsmith Street, where it continues today with several extensions.
