According to our ‘One Life, One Activity’ policy, co-curricular activities (CCA) are activities that take place outside regular class teaching and yet are related to student learning. As such, they fall within the scope of the school curriculum.
CCA should have the following functions:
- Reinforcing classroom learning and allowing students to put their knowledge and skills into practice
- Facilitating the teaching of certain skills and the inculcation of certain values which may present difficulties in a formal classroom setting
- Promoting students’ personal development by broadening their interests, developing their potential and providing opportunities for character formation and leadership training
- promoting students’ social development by offering opportunities for the broadening of their social experiences, the practice of social skills and the internalization of moral and social values
- making school life more challenging and interesting.
