CIP points

Postby A better tomorrow » Thu Oct 10, 2013 5:31 pm

As we all know , cip points are important in secondary school .
100hours =5 points . but , what if there is not enough points ?
I am starting this thread to ask from experienced parents where and how to get a good amount of cip points from outside. ( sometimes schools can't be trusted) :smile: thank you !! :lovesite:

Go to your community centre. Sometimes they have courses with CIP points, like 1st Aid, fire fighting etc

Thank you ! Are there other ways to get cip points other than going to the community centre ? because the school dd is in seems to be a little slack in giving the pupils enough cip hours . ( less than an hour this year) so I really hope to be able to let her have at least a B to minus a point or 2 in the o levels ( she is not in a really active cca too )

Less than 1 hr this yr ? So little ??
i thot there is some min hrs that one needs to fulfill for each yr ?
My gal's sch has no lack of CIP hrs becos there are alot of activities to choose fr esp during sch holidays...

Suggest u check with yr gal's sch first before doing outside CIP hrs...
Which are the organisiations that the sch acknowledges for CIP hrs....as some schs do have some restrictions...

The school should have a CCA in-charge. Maybe can consult him. He is supposed to help the students towards the bonus points

CIP Hour

Postby its888me » Sun Jun 29, 2014 8:20 am

May I know how to get the CIP hour? How to make sure school recognized it if it's done outside the school?

Is there any relationship between the CIP hour and the CCA?

How does CIP help towards calculation of L1R5?

Heard that CIP points would need to be completed by end Sec 3. Is that true?

Thanks.

If so, you should check the specific rules in your school as I believe that different schools implement the scheme a bit differently and may have different requirements for CIP hours not arranged by the school. I can't help you with the other questions; someone else may be able to help?

I didn't know that the requirement for CIP hour implementation is school-specific. Mine only clocked 10 hours so far :-(

CIP stands for Community Involvement Programme. Your school may arrange for some of these activities for the students to participate in. Otherwise, you can source for external ones to volunteer your services - it can be charity organisation or others. How you submit your volunteering hours you need to check with your school. Usually most schools require that you have organisation verification in the form of a letter or form stating the date, time, hours or even events you have volunteered for services at the organisation. Best is to check with your school on the submission.

I think the minimum requirement is the same across the board - 6 hrs per year, or 24 hrs over 4 yrs. But when the student takes part in activities not arranged through the school, he needs to fill a form and get it signed etc, and those requirements will vary from school to school. And some schools may be stricter about what is recognised.

The new system that applies to this year's sec 1 students:
