moms after PSLE would exchange ideas about which CCA to help their kids to choose from when they enter secondary schools. i personally find this article useful.

1. CCAs can help get your child into a good secondary school

2. Find out what your child likes to do

3. Find out what your child can do well

4. Make the most of tryouts

5. So you’re choosing a sport…. but which one?

6. Different CCAs, different commitmentsCCA_pix2

7. Some CCAS have ‘staying power’

8. CCAs can help to ‘strike a balance’ in your child’s school life

9. CCAs need YOU too

10. CCAs build character

Totally agree about finding a balance between academic and physical education! I would say physical education is more for EQ building like leadership/people skills and also, mental toughness. Especially endurance, pushing oneself further during physical trainings and emerging stronger after failures, these can train a child to be unfaltered by little setbacks.

Thanks for a good read in this article here!

Absolutely. Perhaps might be good to find out your child’s learning style too.
Take the MI Quiz to know. I found my learning style here!

I think CCA is great to keep fit and de-stress. Every student should take up an interest in school. But i agree with @kismet, there should be a balance :)

I agree on the need to find a balance by determining your child’s learning capabilities. I had a friend in the past who spent most of her time on her CCA (she was in the military band then) and neglected her studies. As a result, she did badly and had to retain.

I think the most important is whether your child will be able to balance academic studies and CCA? Based on his/her performance in k1/k2, has you child been able to cope with what he or she has learned? It’s important to first determine if you child can cope before getting them to sign up CCAs!
