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 and thus, experience more varied activities, 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 an intensive customized training programme.
