CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES POLICIES

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.

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


PROGRAMME

  1. The CCA programme offers a wide range of activities and caters for the varied interests and abilities of our pupils.

  2. The programme provides year-round involvement and allows for a systematic development of our pupils interests and abilities.

  3. The programme includes participatory (intra-school) and competitive (inter-school) activities. The former enables the active involvement of all pupils. The latter gives our pupils the opportunity to experience competition and motivates them to further pursue their passion.

  4. Pupils are allotted to the various Houses: Oldham (OLD), Thoburn (THO), Tan Kah Kee (TKK), Goh Hood Keng (GHK), Cheong Koon Seng (CKS), Lee Seng Gee (LSG), Shaw Vee Meng (SVM) and Tan Chin Tuan (TCT). Representation at the school's Annual Track and Field and Swimming Championships is on the inter-House basis.

  5. In line with MOE direction, Program for Active Learning (PAL) is integrated during curriculum hours for Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils to provide a platform for holistic development and to nurture their character.

PARTICIPATION

  1. Most CCAs are open to Pri.3 to Pri.6 pupils. Please refer to school website for specific CCA details.

  2. It is compulsory for Pri.4 to Pri.6 pupils to take part in at least one CCA, which could be a uniformed group, a club, a performing arts group or a sport / game.

  3. P4 to P6 boys who wish for their training in a sport outside school to be recognised as a CCA are required to submit an official letter from the club/association to the HOD PE/CCA by 10 January 2020, stipulating their training days and times. The sport has to be sanctioned by the Singapore School Sports Council at the Primary (e.g. Taekwondo, Gymnastics) or Secondary level (e.g. Fencing, Squash). Please refer to https://nsg.moe.edu.sg/sssc for the list of recognized sports. Other sports not offered by SSSC but has a National Sports Association recognized by Singapore Sports Council may also be recognized. If the request is not approved, the HOD PE/CCA will contact the boys within a week.

    • Sports offered at NSG (Primary) will be recognized as school representation, even if it is not a school CCA. All other competitions that require school endorsement for participation are to be approved by HOD.

    • Sports not offered at NSG (Primary) will be allowed to represent the school in one official tournament. Approval by HOD is necessary.
  4. Pupils are encouraged to participate in one CCA. They may participate in a second CCA if they so desire but it should be a less demanding activity to ensure that they do not have too heavy a CCA load and that they have enough rest time.

  5. Pupils can register for a new CCA at the beginning of the new year and are encouraged to stay in that CCA for the whole year. However, pupils may opt to change their CCA in the middle of the year on medical grounds.
      
  6. Attendance is compulsory at every CCA session. Amedical certificate or a letter from the parent is necessary if the pupil is absent. Pupils who are present for at least 75% of their CCA sessions will have their CCA reflected in their Report Book.

  7. Pri.6 pupils have the option to stand down from their CCA from Term 3 onwards.

DEPLOYMENT

Teachers’ competencies, expertise and interests are taken into consideration when they are deployed into the various CCAs. The deployment also ensures that each CCA has at least one experienced teacher who has been in the CCA before. This ensures that the experienced teacher has the knowledge and skills for the smooth running of the CCA and is also able to guide and mentor the new or beginning teachers.

CCA DAYS

Most CCA will run on Wednesdays and/or Fridays. This allows for other days to be freed for other school programmes and activities, such as Hinch, in support for our school policy of a holistic education for our pupils. CCA with school teams may have additional sessions on the other days. Please refer to the school website for the updated schedule of each CCA.
