Co-Curriculum Activities (CCA)

As part of the school’s Co-Curriculum Programmes (CCP) to support the holistic development of students, Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) are designed to develop students’ Attitudes, Skills and Knowledge (ASK) in the cognitive, physical and aesthetics domains. CCA will also provide a common space for friendships and social integration which develop students’ sense of identity and belonging to the school. 

The objectives of CCA are to: 
1.    Provide students with a platform to discover their interests and talents.
2.    Develop specific ASK in students pertaining to the CCA.
3.    Develop character and social-emotional competencies as students interact with one another.

CCA will be carried out within the boundaries of other constraints such as manpower and available facilities. The school hopes that while providing CCA, we do not compromise on the safety of the students and quality of delivery of these programmes. As such, for each programme, even those that are taught by external coaches, teachers are always present to manage and supervise students to facilitate the learning.

 The CCA offered are based on a number of considerations:
 1.  Breadth of learning experiences of each student from P1 to P2 which includes PAL, Enrichment                    programmes and curriculum subjects.
 2.  Available facilities and resources
 3.  Providing varied domains of CCA to cater to various interests
 4.  Staff strength and manpower resources

Important points to note 

CCAs will be conducted after school on either Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays

On Mondays afternoons, students staying back for CCA will have lunch in school first before reporting for their CCA. The timing for CCA on Monday is 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm.

CCA on Tuesday and Thursday is from 2.45 pm – 4.45 pm. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, we strongly encourage students who are not staying back for other school programmes such as ACE to return home for lunch and then report back to school at 2.40 pm.  This is to help the school in Safe Management Measures (SMM). Should your child have to remain in school for lunch on either of these 2 days, their lunch break will be staggered. 


In line with SMM, the school has planned for different levels or groups of students to report on different weeks. Students involved in CCA competitions may have more training sessions in the week to better prepare them.

No student should be loitering outside the school before the start of CCA. Disciplinary action will be taken if students are found to have committed offences outside of school in accordance to the school’s discipline policy and guidelines, including suspension from CCA.

P6 CCA in Semester 1

P6 students will have CCA only in Semester 1.

CCA Guidelines

1. Each student will only be allocated 1 CCA. Participation in additional CCA may only be allowed on a              case-by-case basis.

2.  Students must remain in their CCA for the whole year. They may only change to a new CCA at the                  beginning of each year, which is subject to availability and on a case-by-case basis. All requests must         be made through email to HOD PE only at the end of the year (Term 4 Week 5). The school encourages       all students to remain in the CCA in order to deepen their skills, knowledge and friendships in the CCA.

3. Students who may be involved in future inter-school competitions may be asked to attend additional            training sessions on Monday or Thursday afternoons and/or during school holidays.

4. Students must meet at least 85% attendance criteria before their CCA participation can be recorded in        their Student Holistic Report Card.

5.  Participation in external activities for the purpose of self-enrichment or social interaction as well as             those that are already offered in school will not be considered as a CCA.

6. Student should NOT be loitering around or outside the school before the start of CCAs. Instead, they should make the best use of the time to complete their homework or self-study.

7. Should there be a request for student to participate in the National School Games (NSG) Competitions or Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) and the sport/activity is not part of the school’s CCA e.g. Wushu or Taekwondo, interest to participate must be made through email to HOD PE by end Jan 2021 and to include information on student’s level of preparation for the competition.
