Extra-curricular activities (ECA) are activities that take place
outside regular class teaching and yet are related to student learning. As such,
they fall within the scope of the school curriculum.
ECA take care of the students’ different developmental needs
such as their sense of moral values and attitudes, skills and creativity.
Through their participation in ECA, students can learn to communicate, to cooperate with other people and in addition to enrich their life experience. If
students are given the opportunities to organise ECA, they will gain first-hand
experience of programme planning and leadership, thus enabling themselves to
discover and develop their potential.
