Modular Co-Curricular Activities (MCCA)
Objectives of MCCA
The Modular Co-Curricular Activities (MCCA) at West Spring Primary School aim 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.
The range of MCCA activities being offered in West Spring Primary is based on the parent survey conducted in 2014 and student surveys which were conducted 2016 and 2018. The table shows the MCCA and ‘Bringing Out Our Students’ Talents’ (BOOST) activities which will be offered to our Primary 3 to Primary 6 students in 2019.
In 2019, the MCCAs that will be offered to the Primary 3 to Primary 5 students remain the same, as shown in the table below. The four new MCCAs for Primary 6 students will be Sports Education, Instrumental Ensemble, Digital Video and Mind Sports.
The BOOST CCAs such as Wushu, International Dance, Basketball and Chinese Calligraphy will continue in 2019 for students to pursue specialization and competition opportunities.
Both the MCCAs and BOOST CCAs will be held every Tuesday, during curriculum hours, except if the Tuesday falls on a Public Holiday or during Semestral Examination weeks. Students will be briefed on their groupings and activities in Term 1, Week 2 next year. MCCA activities will commence in Term 1, Week 3. Students selected to take part in BOOST Wushu, International Dance, Basketball, Chinese Calligraphy and STEM will receive more information from their teachers in-charge. Additional training sessions will be on Thursdays or Fridays from 2.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.
