Student’s testimonial:

“A very informative session as it showed us the various opportunities available at the Coast Guard which I personally did not know about. It gave us a feeling that serving our own country is a matter of great pride and privilege and this feeling cannot be obtained by all. It made us aware that Engineering or Medical Science are not the only options available to lead a comfortable life. I’m very glad that I attended this session as it gave me an insight to the profession of a Coast Guard, the risks involved, the minimum amount of years to be served, the income generated, special facilities that our families will receive and many more. I feel more people should take up such career options.”
- Monith, Grade 10 B

“The session was really informative. We got to learn about the benefits and importance of a Coast Guard in our country. I even learnt about the types of Coast Guards and how to get an entry into this field which I was not aware of earlier.”
- Meghna, Grade10 A

To sum up it was a very informative and enriching session for the students of Manipal School.
