CCA Programme and After-school services
In response to the double reduction policy, our CCA Programme is integrated into our after-school service as an important part of our curriculum, aiming to develop well-rounded inquisitive students who are interested in a multitude of activities. The CCA Programme at OCAC Suzhou gives students the opportunity to explore new interests and further develop their own hobbies alongside the normal curriculum. Currently, the school’s CCA programme covers school-level sports and Performing Arts programmes, as well as the school division’s unique after-school service programmes.
