Students of Children’s Comenius University learn more about challenging military jobs in Sereď

Active duty soldiers of the Engineer Battalion Sereď and 12th Mechanised Battalion Nitra have prepared a programme for students of Children’s Comenius University for the next two days. They have an opportunity to familiarise themselves with military equipment and capabilities of the Slovak Armed Forces. On this occasion, they were visited today (8 July 2019) by Defence Minister Peter Gajdoš at the Engineer Battalion Sereď.
 
Defence Minister Peter Gajdoš said: “First of all, I appreciate that the children who have joined the project show enthusiasm and commitment for education even during the summer holidays. Every year we try to prepare a different captivating programme to make them realise that if they connect with the military, they do not have to be afraid of stereotypes.” He further underlined that the SVK MOD is giving a high priority to deepening patriotism and young people’s interest in homeland defence.
 
During the two-day programme, demonstrations of individual capabilities of the Slovak Armed Forces are awaiting the students of Children’s Comenius University. They will learn more about CBRN, tactical and topographical training. They can also go through a series of physical challenges at the obstacle course.
