NATIONAL CADET CORPS
NCC is one of the wings of the so-called Second Line Defence. It is meant to develop among the students a sense of discipline and an aptitude for self-defence. The NCC faction was started in our school by the NCC officer Smt. Suvarna P. Giri in the year 1967. About 100 cadets enroll themselves every year. The training is conducted twice a week before school hours. The cadets participate in various camps that are conducted right from the local level to the national level, like C.A.T.C. or Republic Day camps. These camps inculcate in them obedience, discipline, patriotism, a sense of cooperation, leadership qualities, time management skills, self-confidence, and a tough competitive spirit. During the training, cadets learn skills ranging from trekking, shooting, military education (it includes drill, weapon training, map reading, field craft and battle craft), to First Aid and Community Development training. They participate in social service programmes like flood relief fund collections, adult education programmes etc.
The training is given for two years at the High School level. At the end of the second year’s training, A Certificate examination is conducted. The cadets who clear the examination will be awarded an ‘A Certificate’. This certificate allows them to avail a reservation quota if they go on to pursue a diploma or other collegiate courses. It also enables them to join the police service, if they wish to do so.
Our school has produced a number of such cadets who have achieved professional excellence across several fields.
