A Dulwich education is a holistic education. That is the enduring vision of Dulwich founder Edward Alleyn who aimed to create a school that emphasised sound learning, strong artistic pursuits and good manners. Today that 400-year-old tradition is carried forward in our thriving Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) programme.
CCAs are an integral part of the educational experience across all three of our schools at Dulwich College (Singapore). Our CCA program provides a wealth of opportunity for students to develop a passion for, and develop their skills in, a full range of sports, performing arts and academic enrichment activities. Students of all ages are encouraged to take part in service projects which can link to local and international needs. Each CCA is run by a teacher or student and students are expected to be highly engaged. Students are empowered to choose – and even propose – their own. Dozens of CCAs have been student-led initiatives.
How do students benefit from CCAs?
- Get out of their comfort zone and try new things.
- Gain valuable leadership and interpersonal skills.
- Build out their CVs for university application.
- Enhance wellbeing.
Each term the CCAs reinvent themselves; new ones are added, old ones are retired. Many persist year after year due to popular demand. There is now an astounding 300+ CCAs offered across our three schools throughout the year.
I never know what to choose, there are so many options !!!
