Vision: Passion to Succeed.
Mission: To develop winners with character
Objectives of CCA
- Co-Curricular Activities play a key role in the holistic development of our students. Well organised and implemented, they can fuel in the individual a lifelong love for a particular activity, be it a sport or a musical pursuit. This helps the individual to lead a balanced life in adulthood.
- Through CCAs, students learn to develop social skills, teamwork and leadership competencies through competition, community involvement and rugged activities.
- All CCA emphasize social interaction but each CCA has its specific objectives. For instance, sports develop robustness, fair play and team spirit in students. The performing arts instil in students a sense of graciousness and an appreciation for the rich culture and heritage of a multi-racial society. Uniformed Group activities aim to make good citizens of students by inculcating in them self-reliance, resilience, discipline and a spirit of service to others.
- Besides the inculcation of values, CCA also imbue in our students an entrepreneurial spirit, a risk-taking attitude and an appreciation for aesthetics, all of which are necessary for the holistic development of an individual.
Evergreen CCA Policy for Students
- CCA participation in school is compulsory for all students in secondary schools. Students are required to be active in at least ONE CCA.
- Students may participate in more than one CCA. Points are awarded for students’ participation in a second CCA at school representation level or higher. There is a target of at least 50% attendance for 2nd or 3rd CCA.
- All students must attain a minimum of 75% attendance in their 1st CCA in order for points to be computed.
- Students who are keen to experience the different CCAs offered in school may opt for a change in CCA at the beginning of each academic year. In such cases, the marks awarded for the previous CCA would be credited to the students’ new CCA. However, this does not apply to students in the mandatory CCA.
- The School Band, National Cadet Corps (NCC) and National Police Cadet Corps (NPCC) are mandatory CCA for all secondary schools. Students in these CCA are not permitted to change their CCA throughout the secondary school years except for medical reasons; otherwise all the points for the mandatory CCA will be annulled.
- The number of training sessions ranges from one to three (excluding competitions) in a week.
- External CCAs of only approved organisations are recognized. Refer to List of Approved External Organisations 0809.
