CCAs and Character Development Programme form part of the holistic education provided by the school. The school’s co-curricular programme aims to develop pupils in the following areas:
skills relevant to each CCA
a heart for community service
As participation in CCA is an integral part of our education system, every pupil must be involved in at least one CCA.
At least 75% attendance is required for a pupil to qualify for certified participation. Participation must continue from Sec 1 to Sec 4 or 5.
