A contingent of 190 cadets of Class IX and X escorted by eight teachers visited INA Ezhimala from 01to 03 Dec 2017. The objectives of the visit were:
- To enrich our knowledge about National Defence
- Awareness about the necessity of a force to safeguard the national interest in our territorial waters.
- Get hands on experience of new places.
- To provide us an opportunity to take part in one of the popular Marathons.
Whole contingent was accommodated in Cheeta and Brave Heart squadrons. A sight-seeing was also organized for us by the Academy. Mr. Pramod Singh (from INA) co-ordinate our visits to Kautilya Block, Panini Library and to the stable on the sea-shore. We energized ourselves in Katari Mess in a dignified way. We took part in 5Km run in ‘Land of Legends’ marathon, secured our medals by completing it successfully. The whole visit enthralled us by the Academy’s majestic look and the service what it is offering to the nation. We were strongly motivated by the fruitful visit to INA. Being Asia’s biggest Naval Academy, INA impressed me a lot to take a firm decision to choose what I have to become in near future. I thank authorities of INA, our school authorities and my teachers for giving me an opportunity to visit INA and decide what I have to do to join INA by 2021-22.
