MCS’ Got Talent
Similar to the concept of America’s Got Talent, MCS’ Got Talent is our in-house competition for students to showcase their talents in singing, dance or playing a musical instrument. Interested students go through the audition process with a solo or ensemble performance. Students who are successful in the audition, will get to showcase their performance during Teachers’ Day celebration and/or other events.
