The five-day summer camp organised by the Student Police Cadets, ‘Pratiksha 2014’  started on the Sacred Heart School Campus, Thevara.

Around 400 students from over 11 schools are participating in the camp which is not only aimed at physically developing the cadets but also moulding them into dutiful, determined, socially responsible, law-abiding and service-centred human beings. The camp was inaugurated by Justice C K Abdul Rahim. The jurisdictional heads of Regional Transport Office (RTO), Education, Excise, Forest, Fire and Rescue, Sports Council and Police departments were also present.

“The National Cadet Corps (NCC)) stands for discipline while the National Service Scheme (NSS) is a voluntary service. The combination of these two can be said to be SPC,” said the additional district nodal officer of the programme Suraj. The cadets are divided into two groups of 200 each. One group will have an indoor training session while the other will have a field visit. The next day their roles will be interchanged, he added.

The four areas covered under the field trip for this summer camp are Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited(BPCL) Refinery, Palace Museum, Cochin Shipyard and Indian Navy.

The physical training of the cadets include activities like 3-km run, yoga, kalari etc. Many interactive sessions are being held, including a personality development session by Madhu Bhaskaran.
