Hi mathsparks,mathsparks wrote:Thanks dharma. I was just wondering if most kids get by with just a core or do most take up additional merit as well.
In RGS, core CCA is compulsory and requires 75% minimum attendance. No such requirement for merit CCA. Pupils take up merit CCA cause of passion and interest, mainly. Most girls take up 2 CCA at the most, though there may be some taking more.
RI/RGS places a lot of emphasis on CCAs and child needs to be committed to CCA he/she is involved in terms of practices and trainings. These sessions can last 2 ~3 days. If the child is doing 3rd lang, that’s another evening gone. Just before competitions, the CCA practices can be a daily affair.
