As part of the school’s effort to provide a holistic education for our students, all P3 to P6 students are strongly encouraged to join a CCA. Through active participation in the CCAs, they will learn life skills such as confidence, perseverance and resilience.
We have a range of CCAs covering 4 broad areas namely; physical sports; clubs and societies, visual and performing arts, and uniformed groups. Students learn life and social skills during the CCA sessions. We hope they will pick up the skills necessary for life-long pursuit, if they choose to. Participation in CCAs gives them an opportunity to discover their talent or interest in the non-academic aspect of their education.
Since 2010, we have embarked on a modular CCA Programme to give students even more opportunities to experience a range of CCAs throughout their primary education at CHIJ (Katong) Primary. They get to change CCA every semester where they pick up new skills and make more friends!
Students who have very strong inclination / aptitude towards a certain CCA will be invited to join the developmental teams where they can further hone their skills through customized training programme.
Our School Policy
P3 to P6 students are strongly encouraged to join *one CCA. P6 students will be required to participate in CCAs only in Semester 1.
*As there will be more vacancies in Semester 2, students may take up a 2nd CCA in Semester 2 (provided the schedules do not clash). Parents are to make a written request, via email to the HOD PE/CCA.
Under the modular CCA, students will participate in 2 different CCAs per year, one per semester.
Under the non-modular CCA, each student will be required to remain in the CCA throughout the whole year, till Primary 6 (Semester 1).
Change of CCA
Students should commit to the CCA for the whole semester or year.
Change of CCA is only allowed at the end of the semester or year.
An explanation in written form from parents, or a doctor’s medical certificate is required to be submitted to the teacher-in-charge whenever a student fails to attend a session.
Exemption from School’s CCA
Parents are to write in to the Principal to seek approval for exemption.
Parents are to make their own transport arrangement after CCAs.
