MILLER HALL
 
The Madras Christian College School had its origin 175 years ago.  From its humble beginnings it has grown to be one of the premier institutions of secondary education in India. While the progress so far achieved has been considerable, there is still the need to further consolidate, improve, innovate and strike out boldly along new paths to enrich school life and make it more purposeful and rewarding. Resting on old laurels can lead to stagnation and decline.

Speaking about the school, it is hard for us to forget all the little happenings within the walls of good old Miller Hall. Built by Mr. Kuruvilla Jacob and named after Rev. William Miller the old hall is more than a building.  It was once home to us. Walk into it even now and emotions strike a chord. The Hall is still a witness to the fun and laughter we had there; the floor still smells of the mixture of fallen grains.  The echoes of the Meston fund dramas in which we were transformed into heroes, heroines and villains are still audible!.  This hall which holds the memories we cherish is a place we never want to forget or lose.  The truth however is that this stately old building, constructed in 1950, has lived its life and the walls are crumbling. Mere renovation is neither feasible nor architecturally appropriate.

The Old Miller Hall is to give place to a brand new Multi Purpose Miller Hall and will house classrooms, laboratories, dining hall, kitchen, chapel, audio - visual room and in-door games courts. This three storey building is estimated to cost   Rs 8.5 crores. We are dreaming big but to transform this into reality we need to put our effort and generosity together.

The school has always enjoyed the goodwill of parents and its old boys. This is an appeal to join hands in reconstructing the new multi-purpose Miller Hall.

In a bid to rekindle the old MCC School spirit and nostalgic fervor towards this noble cause, we have planned to highlight the contributions made by each batch that passed out of our school. Any contribution from a sponsor who has been motivated by an old boy will go towards the achievement figures of that batch! Let the inter-batch competition begin! We have also planned to acknowledge all who contribute 10 lakhs and above with their names on a plaque that will be displayed at the new Miller Hall. Also, the purpose behind highlighting the categories in the estimate is to encourage you to take on any one of the items as a whole in which case the sponsored item will bear the name of the donor or the batch!!!

Voluntary donations to the building project may be either sent in lump sum or in convenient installments to the Headmaster, MCC Hr. Sec. School with the cheque/DD drawn in favour of “The Headmaster, MCC Higher Secondary School”, we request you to indicate your commitment and possible timeline towards this effort. Donations carry income tax exemption under section 80 G.  Old boys and well wishers living outside India can transfer fund in the name of “Madras Christian College Association” Bank A/c. No.SB10983143638, Bank Name : State Bank of India (Overseas Branch) 86, Rajaji Salai, Chennai - 600 001, India.  Swift Code : SBI NIN BB 105.

On contributing  we request you to send an email regarding the amount transfered, your account No. and other required details to mcchshm@yahoo.co.in.

Contributions made to the new Miller Hall project will be displayed batch-wise with graphics on the website www.mccschool.in and on the school notice board. We look forward to you for encouragement, support and assistance in networking with all the old boys in your batch.

We have provided a brief sketch on the expenditure estimated for different requirements related to this plan for your perusal.
