The RDC called upon the new patriots to implement what they have been taught during the patriotism training so as to be responsible and resilient citizens. He reminded them to provide security and vigilance at their homes so as to improve on security in their areas.
Amula further urged parents to send their children to school since the turn up at schools is very low because parents are neglecting their role of educating their children.

He also urged the head teachers to support patriotism clubs in their schools.
