Co-curricular Activites 

CCA is a component of our student’s overall education. CCA’s mission is to give our girls a place to explore their interests and abilities while also providing opportunities for healthy and enjoyable activities. CCA also attempts emphasise social contact by creating a common area for students of various backgrounds to form connections and integrate socially. We hope that through CCA, we can instil in our girls our school’s values, social and emotional competencies, and emerging 21st Century competencies, all of which are critical in their development as future leaders.

Sports & Activities

Once our children reach Primary 3, they can choose from four sports and games, and they are usually the favoured CCAs for students who are more sports-oriented.
