Present on this occasion was Mr Pankaj Kapadia, Chairman Surat District Cricket Association as Chief Guest. He felt that the presence of people like Mr Borde and launch of CBCA will not only be of great value for GIIS but also for Surat. He thanked GIIS for this initiative.

Mr Chandu Borde said to the enthusiastic parents, "GIIS is making a lot of effort in shaping children to become all-round personalities who can perform well in any career or field they choose. The CBCA is going to be an integral part of childrens growth. I will always be available for these children in whatever way I can. Education builds technical competencies, whereas sports develop a spirit of sportsmanship which teaches the child to accept both winning and losing."

Mr Rajeev Katyal, Country Director, who had pioneered the setting up of CBCA across campuses in India expressed, "It is an honour to be a part of this academy. We need more initiatives by schools to create great cricketers for the country. We are dedicated in giving children a holistic growth that is not only academy based but beyond."

"We are extremely fortunate to have Mr Borde, a stalwart in cricket as our mentor. Our school will excel in cricket in the coming years. It is a matter of pride for me in getting the opportunity to set up CBCA under his guidance." Spoke Ms Pushpy Dutt, Principal GIIS Surat.
