Modular Co-Curricular Activities (MCCA)
MODULAR CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES (MCCA)
The Modular Co-Curricular Activities (MCCA) at West Spring Primary School aims to provide every student a platform to discover their interests and talents. It offers every West Springer an exposure to a range of activities in different domains – Sports, Aesthetics, Clubs and Societies – to nurture an interest in a variety of non-academic pursuits.
Each domain has its specific objectives. For instance, Sports CCAs develop robustness, fair play and team spirit in students. The Aesthetic CCAs instil in students an appreciation of the rich culture and heritage of our multi-racial society. Clubs and societies aim to inculcate in them the values of self-reliance, resilience, discipline and a spirit of service to others.
All MCCAs emphasise positive social interaction by providing the space for friendships to be formed amongst students of diverse backgrounds. Through MCCA, students develop a sense of identity and belonging to the school and their community. They also develop social and emotional competencies through these experiences.
MCCA at WPS comprises Modular Co-Curricular Activities (MCCA) and the BOOST (Bringing Out Our Students’ Talents) CCA. MCCA are termly modules introduced to West Springers at Primary 3. They will go through 4 different modules in a year with the intention to expose the students to a wide range of activities to discover their interests and talents. The choice of MCCA at WPS is based on a parent CCA survey conducted in 2014. The Primary 3 students will try out Basketball, International Dance, Code for Fun and Environmental Science. At Primary 4 students experience Show Choir, Outdoor Education, Soccer and Code for Fun II. These Modules allow them to understanding the different domains of Sports, Aesthetic, Life-skills and Clubs.
The MCCA platform also allows teachers to identify talented students to further nurture their talent by joining the BOOST CCA. The BOOST CCA aims to develop students to their full potential and provide opportunity for them to pursue excellence. It will also provide students with opportunities to participate in external competitions. Students who show potential during PE lessons and enrichment classes are also offered to join the BOOST CCA. BOOST CCAs offered presently at WPS are Wushu, Calligraphy, International Dance and Basketball. The range of MCCAs offered will be expanded as the population of the school increases.
Both the MCCA and BOOST CCA are held every Tuesday, from 8.00 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. except during Public Holidays and Semestral Examination week.
