Lectures touch on 2 main fields of studies namely First Aid Part 1 and 2, Health and Hygiene Part 1 and 2; and Home Nursing. Practical aspects in bandaging, stretcher drill and footdrill were conducted. Annual examinations were conducted by the Director of Training.
The society emerged runners-up in the Inter-School First Aid Quiz organized by VAD 1. At the State level First Aid Competition, the MHS Red Cresent society emerged First in the First Aid Teamwork.
