The National Cadet Corps ( N.C.C. ) affords opportunities for military training and social service to university students without imposing on them any obligation for active military service.
The aims of the N.C.C. are:
- To develp character, comradeship, idea of service and capacity for leadership in young men.
- To provide service training to young men so as to stimulate interest in the defence of the country, and
- To build up a reserve of potential officers so that the defence of the country can expand in national emergency.
The immediate benefit of N.C.C. training is the improvement in physique and mental alacrity cultivating a sense of pride in smart turn out and bearing, fostering a sense of discipline and responsibility, development of personality and an aptitude for leadership, and the inculcation of the principles and practice of military service. In Christ College we have senior division N.C.C. units for men and women.
