Singapore - Secondary Schools CCA sign now

We, the Secondary School students of Singapore, would like to call upon attention to the participation and necessity of CCAs.

Students have been forced to participate in certain CCAs mainly due to the amount of CCAs they have in their schools, and because of that, the students does not have anything that goes with their interests.

Secondly, students rarely have enough time for revision and studies. Usually, the moment one reaches home after his/her CCA, he/she would already be lethargic. This difficulty is somehow unavoidable as CCAs are as important as their academic studies according to what the students learnt in school. In this case, after the student gets home from CCA, they would have to sacrifice their time for sleep to get their homework done.

Lastly, the problem lies in the existence of CCA points, which can help in getting a better O levels result, and that can cause parents to give unnecessary pressure to the students. Also, if the students does not like his/her CCA, it might make them lose their motivation for schooling which does not help the student both academically.

CCA should be thought as an activity which can make students happier and much more relaxed but in certain circumstances, it actually causes an opposite impact.

This matter should be placed into deep considerations for the sake of the concerned parents and students that are not doing too well in their academic skills due to CCA.

CCAs need not be removed but, can be changed to the better. Such as, reducing the duration of the CCA, increasing the amount of CCAs that has a relation with the interests of a student or giving the students who do not want CCAs, a chance not to have a CCA for the full 4 years, therefore, removing the CCA points system and allowing students to have at least 1 activities that enhances students on skills that is widely used in life per semester (Examples for such activities can be Cooking or Speeching).
