UNITY AND DISCIPLINE

A team of 23 NCC cadets participated in ICC-2015, an Inter Company competition held at JCBM College, Shringeri along with ANO Major G Balakrishna Shetty and Lecturers – Ms.Prathibha Patel M., Mr.Ashwin Shetty A and Ms.Asha T.K. It is worth noting that the team won many prizes in different competitions.
The NCC unit provided many opportunities to cadets to attend training camps, trekking camps, national integration camps at different locations.
As in the previous years, the NCC Unit took the initiative in organizing the Blood Donation Camp in association with the Students’ Council and NSS units which was sponsored by Lions and Lioness Club, Brahmavar – Barkur, Rotary Club Brahmavar and Brahmavar Sports Club, Brahmavar. Altogether, 141 units of blood were donated at this camp and we bow our heads to the donors for their noble gesture.
To inculcate the spirit of patriotism, the NCC Unit celebrated the Independence Day and the Republic Day in a befitting manner jointly with NSS units.
A talk on disaster management, a session on Career opportunities in Defence Sector, a rally on the “Save Girl Child”, a visit to old age home, celebration of Kargil Vijay Diwas and Gandhi Jayanthi were other programmes organized by the NCC Unit.
If CUO Sampan H.T was the proud NCC Cadet in the last year, this time it is the turn of two NCC Cadets in SCUO Vishal Barnes and Sgt Gautham Kumar to make all of us proud by representing Karnataka & Goa Directorate NCC at the Annual NCC Republic Day Camp and the Prime Minister’s Rally held at New Delhi from 01-01-2015 to 29-01-2015 and also representing the Karnataka & Goa Directorate in the final March on Rajpath which is a unique achievement in the history of RD Cadets of the college.
