We expect 100% commitment from all members in terms of attending CCA sessions and dedication in completing their assigned duties. All Sec 1 MCC members should be adequately skilled in taking on the role of an emcee for school-based celebrations and events such as CCA Carnival. We select students who demonstrate an aptitude for communication skills and students who have the willingness and drive to learn. All members of the MCC are expected to possess the dedication to contribute fully and be proactive in carrying out their assigned duties.
