Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)

CCA is an integral part of our students’ holistic education. Through CCA, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. CCA also promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens students’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.


At NTPS, every Primary 3 to Primary 6 student takes part in one CCA taken from the following options:


Clubs & Societies

Clubs & Societies CCAs allow students to explore and extend their interests in wide-ranging and specialised areas which may be knowledge-based or skills-based. Students are honed in information, communication and technical skills as they strive to grow their mastery of the specialised areas.
