History

Feni Girls’ Cadet College (FGCC) is the 11th among 12 cadet colleges in Bangladesh. Located in Feni District, it presents a nice panoramic view stretching along the Feni-Chhagolnaiya Highway. It spans over an area of 47.59 acres, a part of an abandoned British Airfield constructed in 1942 during World War II.

Cadet colleges in Bangladesh have become synonymous to glory and success for their excellence in terms of education as well as creating leaders fostering values of respect, loyalty and moral courage. The number of cadet colleges increased to 10 after the Liberation War.

In this triumphant onward march of cadet colleges, one important thing came into notice regarding the number of girls’ cadet college. Among the ten cadet colleges in Bangladesh, only one (Mymensingh Girls Cadet College) was for the girls while nine other were for boys. The necessity to increase the number of girls’ cadet colleges was felt to ensure better opportunity of education for girls. The introduction of commissioning female officers in Defense Services in 2002 added more impetus to the issue. Finally decision was taken to establish two more girls’ cadet colleges at Feni and Joypurhat.

After a comprehensive reconnaissance a portion of an abandoned British Airfield (constructed in 1942 during World War II) was chosen as the site for Feni Girls Cadet College. The MES (Military Engineer Services) started the project work on 29 June 2004. Cadet selection procedure started in December 2005 and after a nationwide competitive examination best girls were selected for admission.

Initially only minimum number of essential Officers, Faculty Members and Staffs were posted from old colleges while the recruitment procedure was going on. The college received the first batch of newly recruited employees on April 2006. The college opened on 15 April 2006 with 100 students (cadets), fifty each from class VIII and VII. On 7 June 2006 the then Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia formally inaugurated the college through a grand ceremony. Ministers, Chief of three Service, Senior Military and Civil Officers, Elites, Staffs of the college and Cadets were present on the occasion. The college was started with only few essential installations while the project work was still in progress. Now the college stands with a complete and vast infrastructure providing all facilities to cadets.

Military Training

Cadet colleges were primarily established as the feeder institutions to the armed forces. The colleges are also run by the Ministry of Defense. So the cadets are provided elementary military training under the guidance of Adjutant and Military staff that help them to be disciplined and well educated youngsters. this training also helps them to face the rigors of life. Like other cadet colleges, in FGCC also the cadets get elementary training. This training becomes very helpful for the cadets to get chance in the defence service. It is to be noted that cadets can directly take part in the ISSB exam without taking any written test.
