Our students are encouraged to participate in at least one ECA every term throughout their academic years. We provide ECA sessions on a term basis to allow our students to enhance and expand their knowledge. Chess, Trinity Speech & Drama, and Scouts are core ECAs examples. Dodgeball, Multisport, Knitting, Debate Club, and many more ECAs are examples.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3.45 pm to 4.45 pm, the Extra-Curricular Activity Programs operate during lunchtime or after school.
