Co-Curricular Activities

Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) are an important part of our students’ holistic education and development. CCAs enable students to realise their potential by providing them with the  opportunities to discover their interests and talents. In Beacon Primary School, we aim to cultivate in our students the joy of learning so that they are motivated to pursue their interests and talents in the long run. Our CCAs also emphasise social interaction by providing a common space for friendships and social integration amongst students of diverse backgrounds.

The four broad categories of CCAs that are offered are  : 

  • Sports and Games which develops robustness, fair play and team spirit in students. 
  • Visual and Performing Arts which instil in students a sense of graciousness and an appreciation for the rich culture and heritage of multi-racial society.
  • Clubs and Societies which allows students to explore and extend their interests in wide ranging and specialised areas which may be knowledge-based or skills-based.
  • Uniformed Groups which  aims to make good citizens of students by inculcating in them self-reliance, resilience, discipline and a spirit of service to others.

CCA Policy

  1. Students are encouraged to actively participate in one CCA from P3 onward.
  2. Students must have at least 75% of attendance to constitute as a member of any CCA.
  3. Students should not be absent from CCA without a valid reason.
  4. Students are strongly encouraged to remain in their CCA throughout their primary school journey. This is to provide opportunity for progression and allow time for students to develop CCA-specific knowledge, skills, values and attitudes through sustained participation.
  5. Students are not allowed to change CCA within the same academic year; however, they may request for a change of CCA at the end of P3. A written request (letter or email) will be required if a parent/guardian intends to change the child/ward’s CCA. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

CCA Schedule for Semester 1

CCAs are scheduled for all P3 to P6 students on Thursdays from 2.15 pm to 4.15 pm.

In view of the COVID-19 (previously known as the Novel Coronavirus) situation, there will be changes to the CCA schedule. Some CCAs will be suspended until the end of term 1 to reduce the risks of exposure from inter-mingling of students. Please refer to the table below. Parents whose children are in Category A and B would have received notification on Parents Gateway.
