Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)

Co-Curricular Activities 

Co-Curricular Activities play a key role in the holistic development of our students. The framework for CCA is anchored in the values of developing students' interests in life-long recreational activities and broadening students' experiences. 

The Damai CCA Policy

  • It is compulsory for every student to take part in one CCA. 
  • Students who wish to represent the school in a second CCA not offered by the school will have to seek prior approval from the HOD CCA
  • Students may opt for a change of CCA at the beginning of each year
      • However, this does not apply to students in the Uniformed Groups (UG) and Symphonic Band. Students in these CCAs are strongly encouraged not to change their CCA to fully benefit from it over the 4 years. 
  • Students must : 
      • obtain their parents' endorsement of their participation in CCA
      • attend CCA regularly and be fully participative throughout the CCA sessions
and
      • inform the teachers-in-charge if they need to be excused from a CCA session due to medical or other valid reasons. 

Recognition of Students’ Level of Attainment under LEAPS 2.0

At the end of the graduating year, students’ co-curricular attainment will be marked as  Excellent/Good/Fair.  

CCA points are allocated based on a student’s Participation, Service, Leadership and Achievement as outlined in LEAPS 2.0. 

The level of attainment will be converted to bonus point(s) which can be used for admission to Junior Colleges/ Polytechnics/ Institutes of Technical Education.
