2023 SEC 1 CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITY EXPERIENCE

Welcome Sec 1s to Seng Kang Secondary School!

Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) is an integral part of the school’s curriculum and is intended to provide our pupils with a more holistic education. Through CCA, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. CCA also promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens students’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.

The Sec 1 CCA Experience will take place from 3 January to 13 January where you will get to discover what CCA is like in SKSS. You are strongly encourage to participate in the activities organised by the various CCA which should go beyond the CCA that you are interested in so that you can make a more informed choice.
