In ACS(Junior), CCA is an integral part of our pupils’ holistic education. The aim of CCA is to teach our pupils knowledge and skills, inculcate in them correct values and desirable social attitudes and provide for healthy and fun recreation.
At the same time, we hope that our pupils’ participation in CCA will cultivate in them a strong ACS spirit of integrity, curiosity, collaboration, loyalty and pursuit of excellence. Having a shared experience with their fellow schoolmates allows the boys to build a sense of camaraderie that contributes to the unique ACSian experience.
