CCA

Mission: To provide every pupil with a holistic school experience through CCAs.

Vision: Active and cultured youths of tomorrow


 In BTPS, we strived to provide every pupil a holistic school experience through CCAs.  Our vision is to develop our pupils into active and cultured youths of tomorrow.

Through CCAs, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies.  These will prepare them for a rapidly changing world.  CCAs also promotes friendships among pupils from diverse backgrounds as they play, learn and grow together. Participation in CCA also fosters social integration and deepens students’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.

Tiered approach to CCA

At the broad level, the conduct of CCA across the educational levels follows a tiered approach, with each tier undergirded by a specific focus. Students’ participation at one level lays the foundation for their development in CCA at the next level. The tiered approach maps the developmental trajectory envisioned for pupils in CCA as they move through the education system.

Purpose of CCA

 

BTPS CCA Programme provides pupils with a platform to discover their interests and talents. Well-organised and implemented, they can fuel in the individual a life-long love for a particular activity, be it a sport or a musical pursuit. This helps the individual to lead a balanced life in adulthood.

All our CCAs emphasize social interaction but each CCA has its specific objectives.

·   For instance, Sports and Games develop robustness, fair play and team spirit in pupils.

·  The Performing Arts instil in pupils a sense of graciousness and an appreciation for the rich culture and heritage of a multi-racial society. 

·  Uniformed Group activities aim to make good citizens of pupils by inculcating in them self-reliance, resilience, discipline and a spirit of service to others.

 

Pupils who are keen on a CCA (for e.g swimming, taekwondo etc.) not offered by the school are also encouraged to pursue on their own.

Pupils develop CCA-specific knowledge, skills, values and attitudes through sustained participation in any of the CCA groups continuously. CCA also offer excellent platforms for pupils to learn core values and social and emotional competencies.

 

All CCA emphasise social interaction by providing a common space for friendships and social integration amongst pupils of diverse backgrounds. Through CCA, pupils develop a sense of identity and belonging to the school. 

 

BTPS enable all pupils to have active and meaningful CCA participation as we try to provide a balanced, inclusive and diverse CCA programme which caters to a broad spectrum of interests and talents.
