The orientation was meant to familiarize the new students with the rules of MYC, the new environment and the big brother – small brother system.  Once the 4-day orientation was over, they all sat for assessment tests from the General Studies Department and their respective workshops.

This is the second week they are in MYC and they seem to be adjusting well to the school and home programme.  Keep it up boys!

2ND YEAR ORIENTATION FOR BATCH 15

After the graduation of their senior brothers, Batch 15 boys were managing their own daily activities with the new team of prefects. A 3-day orientation (from 15-17 July 2016) was held in Port Dickson, animated by the Bro. Director and the Student Affairs team. This orientation bonds them as they were given various team building activities and leadership sessions.

The students also share about themselves; who they were a year ago and what they are today, and aspire to be like their seniors; to graduate from MYC and do their family proud. The orientation also prepares them to receive their junior brothers (Batch 16) who will be joining MYC on 31 July 2016.
