May I know whether UG can earn full 2 points for CCA such as NCC land or Red cross? I see one domain in achievement need to represent school... NCC do what?

And if trf to another school but join back NCC still can get 2 full points?

Appreciate kind parents' advise. Thank you.

All cca will allow you to get 2 points bonus as long as you achieve the requirments for leaps2.0
Actually, for UGs it is much easier because the program is structured and schools must adhere to HQ programms if they want to get gold.

As for transfer to another school, yes... the ncc experience will be counted if you enrol in another school, just need to let the teacher in charge lf the new school know so that they can do some paper with HQ.

Hope this helps.

Does primary school allow a student to take up both Volleyball and wushu CCA at the same time? or can a child take up two CCA at the same time?

Generally, schools do not encourage students to take up 2 CCA mainly because of the time that needs to be invested may be detrimental to their school-life harmony. Exceptions are made if the student is very good in one CCA (eg Wushu.. representing Schools or Singapore). Then the other CCA can be justified in providing exposure beyond what he is focused on.

Generally.. good for your child to enjoy his childhood.. one CCA is considered to be a balanced approach.

Not true.

There are schools that uphold the philosophy for 2 compulsory CCAs for their students unless exempted on medical excuse. The view is for young teenagers to expand their energy in constructive CCAs for sportsmanship, leadership, etc. Engaging in constructive activities helps the young body to expand energy & channel oxygen to the brains & for healthy body building. Research hv shown that when we exercise, the oxygen carries thro our body & the endorphins released helps the brains to absorb better when learning.

Finally, my take is young ppl hv plenty of time on their hands & my mind wld be more rested knowing my kids are on school grounds for CCAs then out in Starbucks or other locations hanging ard idling their time away. It helps reduces their opportunities to be glued on screentime after sch esp those non-exams and sch holiday stretches. Just sharing MO.

hi there got a question about CCA and how it affects the L1R5. Heard from somewhere that foreign students won't get the CCA bonus even if the student took CCA in Sec 4. Is that true?
