Co-Curricular Activities

Participation in CCAs is a necessary component of a holistic education. CCAs provides opportunities for character and leadership development and promotes the acquisition and application of social and co-operative skills. Students will learn the value of discipline, teamwork, responsibility and commitment.

CCAs are considered a core but non-examinable module at the High School. Each student must participate in one CCA.

Students who enter at Year 3 may

  • Continue with their CCAs in their former Secondary School only if the CCA is a uniformed group and it is not offered in NUS High School. Such students will be encouraged to take on a second CCA under the list of Clubs and Societies. This is to ensure that the student interacts with others in the School outside academia.
  • Change their CCAs when they join the High School.
