NCC IN DPS KALYANPUR

NCC was introduced in DPS Kalyanpur in the year 2014 with an objective of training the youth into disciplined and patriotic citizens.

DPS Kalyanpur has successfully taken up NCC for the girls of class VIIIth to Xth in the past years thereby enabling them for a brighter and progressive future. We have 50 girl cadets associated with 17 UP (Girls) BN NCC. During a period of two years, various kinds of physical activities, sports and outdoor camps are conducted in school. On every Friday and Saturday, cadets are trained by the school staff and PI Staff.

During the camps the cadets enjoy different activities such as yoga, drill, public speaking, singing, dancing, etc. To encourage the cadets various cultural programme are organized and the cadets are felicitated with medals.

During the 1965 and 1971 wars with Pakistan, NCC cadets were the second line of defence. They organised camps to assist the ordnance factories, supplying arms and ammunition to the front, and also were used as patrol parties to assist in capturing the enemy Paratroopers. The NCC cadets also worked hand-in-hand with the Civil Defence authorities and actively took part in rescue work and Traffic Control.

After the 1971 Indo-Pak War, the NCC syllabus was revised. Rather than training to becoming the second line of defence, NCC syllabus laid greater stress on developing qualities of leadership and Officer-like qualities. The military training which the NCC cadets received was reduced and greater importance was given to other areas like social service and youth-management.

NCC is not an organisation which is to serve as a ‘feeder’, for the entry of students into the Defence Services. It is an organisation to make them useful citizens of the country, irrespective of the vocation they may choose on completion of their studies.

Hence, NCC activities are only a ‘means to an end’; the ‘end’ being the achievement of the “Aims of NCC” in the context of the students.
