Through this programme, our students will be able to explore and experience success in a range of activities, apply learning beyond the classroom, develop their Learning Dispositions and grow in our school’s GRACIA values.

1. What is the purpose of the OLN 360 programme?  
The purpose of the OLN 360 programme is to facilitate the delivery of the OLN Outcomes by broadening the holistic curriculum and learning domains encountered by our students. 

2. How does the OLN 360 programme broaden my child’s interests?
Through the OLN 360 programme, your daughter will be exposed to topics and activities in 4 different domains, namely, Sports (Ready, Steady, Go!), Life Skills (Pockets of Joy!), New Media Literacies (#Thinker) and Inquiring into Our World (Have a Heart!). Through these modules then, students will be exposed to a range of areas and experiences.   

3. What happened to some of the CCAs? 
In the design of the OLN 360 programme, certain activities, skills and competencies linked to some of the CCAs are included. For example, the Ready, Steady, Go! module will incorporate a range of games skills while the Have a Heart! and #Thinker modules will incorporate skills previously taught in the Dramatix, Young Scientists Club and Media & Broadcasting Club. As such, these CCAs were disbanded to prevent a duplication of programmes.  

4. Does this mean that my child will not be able to join a CCA now? 
No. The aims of the CCAs and the OLN 360 programme differ. Your child can still opt to join a CCA after school, subject to availability of places and your child having the necessary aptitude for the CCA. 

5. Why can't the current CCAs be conducted instead during the 90 minutes?
The aims of the CCAs and the OLN 360 programme differ. In addition, the school is not equipped to conduct all existing CCAs concurrently due to a lack of space. Moreover, some CCAs prepare their members for competitions and these need more time and depth of training too, e.g. longer practices in the run-up to competitions.  

6. Will the remaining CCAs be able to cater to all students?
Not every student may wish to join a CCA and CCA is not compulsory in the primary school. 

7. Will members of the CCAs removed, have to join another CCA? 
No, they do not have to. CCA is not compulsory at the primary level. However, students will be given an option to join other CCAs they show an aptitude for.  

8. Do children with CCAs need to take part in the OLN 360 programme? 
Yes. The OLN 360 programme is a school programme and compulsory, and the aims of the CCAs and the OLN 360 programme differ. The OLN 360 programme is not a replacement for CCA but a separate programme designed to enhance the delivery of the OLN Outcomes.
