Construction of Olympic Size Swimming Pool started
The founding fathers of this institution thought big and showed their vision in constructing a swimming pool along with the other infrastructural facilities in the college in the early fifties to make it self-reliant and capable of imparting quality education as well as training in sports and games. Even after half a century, there are only a handful of institutions in India having a swimming pool. Our swimming pool is old and has fallen into disuse. It has to be rebuilt. All the students of this college and the neighboring institutions and even students of primary schools in and around the taluk can be taught survival swimming. Through mass participation, talent can be spotted early and training can be given systematically to bring laurels to the institution as well as to the country. Opportunities will be given to the public to participate in swimming programme as a regular exercise to maintain their health and thereby build a healthy nation. Swimming can work as a therapy for people of all age groups as well as for the differently —abled and make them cheerful.
