CCAs are an integral part of our students’ holistic education. Through CCA, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. CCA also promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens students’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.

CCA Objectives: 

Breadth of experiences: Students in each CCA being introduced and exposed to a variety of programmes and     activities.

Progressive: a comprehensive plan is in place to develop the students progressively in the CCAs.

Enjoyment and connection: Students have adequate time during CCA to connect and collaborate with one   another, and enjoy the experience.

Team Spirit: Students establish good peer relationship and teamwork within the CCA.

Competencies development: Students develop character, and citizenship, and achieve the 21st century skills,   while identify their interests and talents.

The above are considered and covered in the 3 tiered approaches.
