National Cadet Corps Director Major General Gamini Jayasundera yesterday stressed the importance of being cadets to face future challenges.

He said cadets who receive comprehensive training at the Rantebe NCC Training Centre can face any challenge.

Major General Jayasundera was addressing the passing out parade of over 2,000 cadets of 22 battalions across the country at the NCC parade grounds Rantebe yesterday.

It is the policy of Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to produce resource personnel who are confident in taking up any challenge through cadet training, he said. Gampaha Bandaranayake College won the coveted Herman Loos Trophy while Taxila College bagged the De Soyza Champion Trophy at the annual Herman Loos De Soyza trophy competition at the National Cadet Corp Training Centre at Rantebe.

Kingswood College Kandy and Rathnawali Balika Vidyala became the runners up. The best shooters were R Thilakaratne and HNT Hennayake of Ratnavali Balika Vidyalaya and St Joseph College, Bandarawela. St Sylvester College, Kandy and Devi Balika College bagged the trophy for most disciplined platoons at the Herman LoosDe Soyza trophy. Officers and the cadets representing India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh were present at the passing out parade.

Special awards of commendations were presented to officials of SAARC countries at the passing out ceremony.
