2015 CCA Framework.png
CCA@OLN Framework

The Heart of the Framework is a Student-centric, Values- driven CCA programme. Our CCA programme is designed to cater to the interests and abilities of our pupils, guided by our school values- Graciousness, Responsibility, Appreciation, Compassion, Integrity and Adaptability (GRACIA)

The Circle represents a well - rounded and holistic development of our pupils through  the 5 domains - Physical, Aesthetic, Socio-Moral, Leadership and Cognitive.

Through sustained and active participation in CCAs, our pupils are able to acquire and demonstrate 21st Century Competencies which will enable them to capitalise on the rich opportunities of the new digital age, while keeping a strong Singapore heartbeat.

Introduction

  • The 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.
  • Pupils progressively develop CCA-specific knowledge, skills, values and attitudes through sustained participation in any of the CCA groups.
  • CCA also offer excellent platforms for pupils to learn core values, social and emotional competencies and the emerging 21st Century Competencies.
  • All CCA emphasise social interaction by providing a common space for friendships and social integration amongst students of diverse backgrounds. Through CCA, pupils develop a sense of identity and belonging to the school.

Objectives Through sustained and active participation in CCA, we hope that pupils will develop and demonstrate:
  • knowledge and skills related to their chosen CCA
  • our school values (GRACIA), social and emotional competencies and the emerging 21st Century Competencies
  • leadership skills and teamwork
