phtthp, there is a LEAPS 2.0 document (from MOE, can be googled) which should help explain clearly. It seems easier to accumulate points from UG as compared to say Sports.

Sorry, didn't manage to embed it here...

Is there any significance to LEAPs 2.0 or CCA points for IP students? I thought it was not relevant so I never pay any attention to it

Regarding the question about changing cca, if I am not mistaken, in Leaps 2.0, a student in the SAME cca for 4 years gets a higher Participation band than one who is in a cca for 4 years. Regardless of UGs or sports or clubs. Like if you are in Art Club for 4 years, you get a higher band than your classmate who was in Scouts for 1 year and then NPCC for 3 years.

Regarding accumulating points, I actually think it is easier to get a higher Achievement band through performing arts. But I guess easy or hard depends...

If I am not mistaken, all CCA participation is recorded in the computer system in MOE. And teachers key in info into this MOE system that is closed at the end of the student’s sec sch education. So if you were to transfer school , the info stays. So while Leaps 2.0 may not be directly applicable to IP, I would imagine that the data is being collected/ input into the same MOE system.

Hi,

Can I ask here with regards to uniformed groups. Between St John Brigade and NCDCC, my son is undecided. He likes the life saving skills in both but does not like marching. Can anyone share more on these 2 cca please? If they have any personal experience. Thank you

is it true that

if join Cca like Librarian, or any other Sec Cca that require only once a week Cca attendance , at the end of Sec 4,
students are awarded only 1 bonus point for Cca, instead of the usual 2 Cca points ?

Yes phtthp, it seems so, doesn't it? Library CCA (in m'kids Sec school) is a once a week commitment; but they also ask for contributions in talent areas (powerpoint, storytelling... ), so I'm thinking those contributions will be allocated more points at the end? What if, the librarian regularly serves in the library more than the stipulated 1day a week, will it reflect well & add to CCA points, I wonder? Our Library teacher is also our MT teacher, will try to ask her & let you know if there's news. ;-)

You may want to find out if your child has to go back on certain selected Saturday mornings for additional training even if UG is on weekday. Avoid UG if your child has Saturday morning tuition as they will clash in schedule.

St John will get to learn more about first aid and NPCC is mostly marching and polishing boots. That is my opinion and also based on friends’ feedback too.

For uniform group like Scouts, do they meet on Sat?
Selected Saturdays but rarely. Depends from school to school too. Get your Son to go ask the seniors (Sec 3 or Sec 4) from Scouts.

It is possible to get 2 point for CCA by end of Sec 3 if you are representing schools for competitions.
