Sylhet Cadet College

A Brief History of Sylhet Cadet College:

When Bangladesh and Pakistan were a joined country, Pakistan Military Force established some Cadet Colleges in West Pakistan (Now Pakistan) and some Cadet Colleges in East Pakistan (Now Bangladesh). After the liberation war, Bangladesh Defense Force established six more Cadet Colleges (among them one cadet college, Mymensingh Girls Cadet College , was established for girls). Sylhet Cadet is the 1st Cadet College after the liberation war of 1971. Basically this college was established in Pakistan time as a Model School in 1969. In 1974, it was modified and converted to a Model College. Bangladesh Defense force modified this Model College and converted it to a Cadet College in 1978. In 1979, An admission test took place for selecting the students from Model College to keep them in this new modified Cadet College. And first , second and third batch of this new Cadet College was from the Model College, and in the same year a fresh new batch ( 4th Batch ) was taken as fresh Cadet. First Batch passed the college in 1982 and first intake i.e. fourth batch passed in 1985. And from that time, an admission test started taking place every year to admit new cadets in class seven.

Natural beauty and Environment of Sylhet as well as S.C.C.

Nestled in the picturesque Surma Valley amidst scenic tea plantations and lush green tropical forests, greater Sylhet is a prime attraction for all tourists visiting Bangladesh. Lying between the Khasia and the Jaintia hills on the north and the Tripura hills on the south, Sylhet breaks the monotony of the flatness of this land by a multitude of terraced tea gardens, rolling countryside and the exotic flora and fauna. Here the thick tropical forests abound with many species of wild life, scented orange groves and luxuriant pineapple plantations spread their aroma around the typical hearth and homes of the Manipuri Tribal maidens famous for their dance. The Sylhet valley is formed by a beautiful, winding pair of rivers named the Surma and the Kushiara both of which are fed by innumerable hill streams from the north and the south. The valley has good number of haors. During winter these haors are vast stretches of green land, but in the rainy season they turn into a turbulent sea. These haors provide a sanctuary to the millions of migratory birds who fly from across the Himalayas to avoid the severe cold of Siberia. For miles and miles around, the visitor can see the tea gardens spread like a green carpet over the plain land or on the sloping hills. Sylhet, the tea granary of Bangladesh, not only has over 150 tea gardens but also proudly possesses three largest tea gardens in the world both in area and production. Madhabkunda: About 3 km. from Dakhinbagh Railway Station there is the famous waterfall of Madhabkunda which attracts large number of tourists every year. Tamabil-Jaflong: Situated amidst splendid panorama, Tamabil is a border out post on sylhet - Shilong Road about 55 km away from sylhet town. Besides enchanting views of the area one can also have a glimpse of the waterfalls across the border from Tamabil. Jaflong is also a scenic spot nearby amidst tea gardens and rare beauty of rolling stones from hills. For accommodation at Sylhet town, some reasonably good hotels are availalble. Rest house accommodation at Srimangal and other places are also available for tourists.
