Types of Co-Curricular Activities

Types of CCAs

There are generally two types of CCAs.
1.      Core CCA (also known as Main CCA) and;
2.      Merit CCA (also known as Secondary CCA or Optional CCA).
1. Core CCAs
(e.g. Band, Rugby, Boys' Brigade, Track and Field, Singapore Youth Flying Club)
·         These activities normally take up more time and resources.
·         They have more emphasis placed on them by the school.
·         Core CCA is compulsory for secondary school students in Singapore and it is considered an integral part of the education system.
2. Merit CCAs
(e.g. Chess Club, Gardening, Philatelic Club, and Library Club)
·         These are less time-consuming.
·         They are an optional addition for students with an interest in the Merit CCAs subject.
