Co-Curricular Activities

What is CCA?

The Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) Program is an important part of the holistic education programme at Dulwich Zhuhai, offering opportunities for students to excel in their fields of interests academically and non-academically, while also developing life-long skills. Being an integral part of the journey of a Dulwich Zhuhai student, these activities are all organised after academic lesson hours, where English Speaking is at the forefront.

We place equal emphasis on our students' intellectual and personal development, encouraging them to learn from everything they do.

We believe strongly in delivering a holistic education, one offering opportunities for students to excel academically in their fields of interest while also developing skills needed in later life. Our students’ engagement with communities, both inside and outside school, broadens their experience and promotes a sense of social responsibility.

CCAs run across two blocks in the academic year, with each being roughly 12 weeks in duration, breaking into different strands. These strands are designed to both supplement and expand on curriculum delivery, in addition to building skills and accumulate experience outside of examined subjects. The fundamental aims of our CCA program allow students to:

  • Experience learning in non-curricular subjects
  • Develop creative and practical skills through collaboration and research (SE21)
  • Experience service in the community
  • Develop leadership skills through practical opportunities
  • Engage in meaningful competition in academia and sports
  • Actively engage with and promote environmental sustainability projects
  • Take part In the Dulwich Digital Difference journey (the D3 journey)

Students are expected to participate in at least two co-curricular activities per week. Over 40 CCAs are available every week, led by both students and teachers. This allows students to develop their leadership skills and to explore their interests.
