The Ministry of Education is placing greater emphasis on students’ participation in ECA for entry into university. Each student must participate in at least one ECA.

Through ECA, students are expected to acquire skills, learn discipline and teamwork, develop leadership, increase self-esteem and build confidence in their pursuits. ECA contributes towards a holistic development of each student while complementing academic studies.
