CAP Cell of Bejai

Canara Organization for Development and Peace (CODP) is the nodal agency of the Mangalore Diocese which is instrumental in setting up Cap Cell in all the Parishes.  The prime intention of the Cap Cell is to promote and encourage the youth of the parish to take up IAS, IFS, IPS and KAS etc. and other Government jobs as a profession.  CODP organizes cap quiz every year in order to find students who have the aptitude to take up IAS and KAS examinations.  The students who do well in the cap quiz are then given comprehensive training and guidance by competent resource persons at CODP.   This year about 160 students from the Diocese have been short listed for training.  

Our parish youth have done reasonably well in the cap quiz in fact in the first year 2007 Sharon Braggs won the first prize.  This year Sanal Fernandes won the second prize and Alisha Mendonca won the consolation prize.  The cap cell in our parish has done a fairly good job and this year three candidates are attempting the IAS exam and seven candidates have attempted the KAS exam.  This year 28 students took the cap quiz.  The cap cell also promotes students of 8th std to take up National Talent Search Examination.  This year 36 students from the parish will be taking this test.  Mr. Patrick Braggs is the cap cell convenor in the parish.  He is also the nodal officer for Episcopal Varado.
