CCA Structure and Approach
Concord’s CCA is implemented on a 2-tiered approach.
The first-tiered approach focuses on student talent development and mastery of skills. Students who are talented in the arenas of Sports and Performing Arts are identified and placed in certain CCAs. Primary 1 and 2 undergo a selection process for Performing Arts.
After which the identified students will be placed in the different Performing Arts CCA (Band, Choir, Indian Dance and International Dance). For Primary 3 students, they will undergo a selection process for Sports CCA via the Sports Trial Tests. The identified and talented students in the different groups of CCA are required to attend training on specific weekdays from 3.30pm to 5pm, over and above the CCA practice on Friday. The intent is to increase the intensity and rigour of the training so that our students are well - prepared for all competitions.
The second-tiered approach focuses on mass participation for our students to be in at least one CCA. The session is carried out on Fridays during curriculum time from 9am to 11am. Leveraging this approach, the school hopes to achieve 100% CCA participation and most importantly to develop and equip our students the CCA – related values and the 21CC skills.
The monthly half-hour CCA Assembly is held during Friday CCA from 9am to 9.30am. It constitutes a variety of activities such as CCA-related skits and talks by external agencies and organization. In collaboration with the PE department, PE teachers conduct Character In Action talk to teach students about sportsmanship via videos and articles that depict exemplary sportsmanship behavior.
Students are given sometime to embark on a reflection journey penning down their thoughts and reflections on the CCA Journal after each talk. Leveraging the CCA Assembly, the school affirms and recognizes students’ CCA achievements by providing them platforms via CCA assembly, to perform on the stage to showcase their talents and skills.
