With the aim to instill confidence, discipline comradeship and train the students to be worthy citizens and future leaders, the school started the NCC (National Cadet Corps) training as a part of curriculum. NCC Cadets are given training on a regular basis. The motto of the training is to prepare students to serve the nation and be responsible and disciplined citizens of the nation. In keeping up the spirit and enthusiasm, every year, NCC cadets of the school attend various camps.

NCC training Camp - January 15, 2015
On the foggy morning of 15 January 2015, all the NCC girl Cadets, along with their ANO, Ms.Sangita Bhardwaj went to 60 Infantry Brigade for a firing training camp. All girls were taught how to hold a gun, and steps to insert a bullet. While for some just holding the weapon was like an adventure, others said it was what they had been looking forward to the most in their training. The instructor explained about the parts of a rifle. The cadets were also taught how to set a target and then how to fire shots. In the very first round the cadets were given ten 2.2 caliber real bullets to shoot. All cadets excelled and as a token of appreciation they were given another chance to shoot. "Firing is one of the most important training in NCC, without which the experience is incomplete. I was waiting for firing day since the first day of this camp and was very excited to come here", says Pooja Madan of Class IX. After the shooting practice, the cadets went for some more adventure activities like Obstacle race.

School NCC Incharge

A blessed day it was- Nov 8, 2014 when I got those stars on my shoulders. I had a unique experience and the feeling cannot be expressed in words. I reported at the Officers Training Academy (OTA), Gwalior on August 10, 2014 to attend a three months training for lady ANOs (Associate NCC Officers).

The three months training period brought my student days back into memory. We had a rigorous syllabus where lessons on basic military subjects, civil defense, leadership, national integration awareness etc were taught. I learned something very new and different every day. The training was not easy to undergo but I found it very interesting. The trainees were exposed to a regimented way of life which is essential for inculcating values of discipline, punctuality, orderliness and self confidence.

There were around 80 teachers from all over India sharing rooms together.I felt the thrill and joy of community living following a rugged but interesting routine. This also helped in developing camaraderie, team work, self reliance and dignity of labour among trainees. The trainees had to get up at 5 a.m. for the training and on some days we worked very late into the night. Every morning started with a P.T which was followed by a drill. After a quick shower and breakfast, we rush for our lectures. Evenings are for sports activities. We were given training in tent pitching, map reading, and weapon training and firing which I found very exciting. In addition to this there were other camp activities like trekking, excursions and sports.

I feel proud to say that I received silver medal (II Prize) for my overall performance during the course. I also bagged Ist Prize in Table Tennis (Singles) and the 'Best Lecture' Certificate as well.

I am now an ANO from Shiv Vani with a Third Officer Rank. I feel proud that I could successfully complete my training. I would like to thank Principal Sir, Mr. Prashant Narula, for showing faith in me and motivating me to take this opportunity. I would also like to thank my family, friends, and colleagues who supported me for this training of three months.

Thank you all once again.
