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.
strongly believe that these are important attributes which will equip our
pupils well to adapt to the demands of 21st century living.
