Auditorium takes a new shape Dr.Clement J. Felix Auditorium - the pride of MCC School and an important part of the stupendous infrastructure of the school was revamped and restructured to meet modern demands. The auditorium has an interesting history. An old building already existed when Mr.Kuruvilla Jacob purchased the land in 1946. This building housed the junior hostel and also the Headmaster’s residence. This historic building was brought down and an auditorium was built to commemorate the 150th year celebration. The foundation stone was laid by the former Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi on 5th October 1985 and was inaugurated by the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu Dr. M. Karunanidhi on 31st October 1990. There was a felt need for an air conditioned auditorium with other modern facilities.Hence the auditorium was renovated at a cost of Rs.2.75 crores. The new auditorium has now a seating capacity of 850. The acoustics and lights are also redone and re-fixed. Mr.M.M.Rajendran, IAS, Former Chief Secretary, Tamil Nadu, Former Governor of Odisha and an alumnus of the school inaugurated the auditorium on October 12, 2017.
