Cadet platoons in N-E schools

Terrorism which prevailed in the country was the main barrier in extending the National Cadet Corps (NCC) network to the Northern and Eastern Provinces. Terrorism has been wiped out and the opportunity has now emerged to establish cadet platoons in schools in the two provinces, NCC Director Major General Gamini Jayasundara said.

Major General Jayasundara said the NCC will train around 40,000 new cadets within the next four years to increase the number of cadets to 100,000 by the end of 2016.

Around 60,400 cadets receive training in 2,417 schools including national schools. Measures are in place to setup 400 cadet platoons in Sri Lanka. NCC battalions have expanded into 22 and four among them are established in Jaffna, Trincomalee, Ampara and Vavuniya districts in the Northern and Eastern provinces, he said.

“President Mahinda Rajapaksa has stressed the necessity for a cadet platoon for each and every school in the country in the Mahinda Chinthana future vision.

We have taken all measures to achieve this target,.” Major General Jayasundara said. In addition to the cadet training programmes, the NCC has made plans to hold special leadership training programmes to the prefect boards to create disciplined youths with proper skills, knowledge and good values, he said.
