Vizianagaram: An Armed Forces Awareness Camp was organised at Sainik School, Korukonda, in Vizianagaram district on Friday in which hundreds of students from places attended. Motivational lectures and movies as well as PowerPoint presentations on all the three services – Army, Navy and the Air Force – were organised and special movies were screened.
The NCC wing of the school set up publicity stalls for the Army wing, Air Force wing and Navy wing as well as one for the Sainik School, Korukonda, which gave information to young students on the various entry schemes and admission procedure. Many students showed keen interest in joining the armed forces.
There was a scintillating performance of military music by the famous Navy Band and a breathtaking demonstration of slithering down from a helicopter by the Marine Commandos of the Indian Navy. Cadets of Sainik School, Korukonda, demonstrated their skills of drill with the school band playing alongside.
Commodore AS Baghel, chief guest for the Armed Forces Awareness Camp, interacted with the boys, girls, teachers and parents, while listing out the several benefits of joining the armed forces. He exhorted the students who aspired to don the uniform of the elite services to work hard and achieve their goal.
Students from various schools said joining the armed forces was the best career option and a profession that would give them not only an opportunity to serve the country but also to enjoy a decent and dignified life.
Women Officers of the Indian Navy motivated the girl students who visited the camp.
Group Captain and school Principal Ravi Kumar thanked the students who came from faraway places to participate in the programme. He said that such programmes will now be an annual feature intended to educate and motivate the students. He further said children who were enthusiastic of being a part of the armed forces would make themselves, their families and the nation proud.
The camp was organised under the stewardship of Registrar Lt Col Ashok Babu and headmaster Lt Col Praveen Kumar.
