In early 2017, a group of teachers from Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah CCA Unit was assigned to restructure the current CCA Unit which has been established for many years. After careful and meticulous planning, the Unit successfully introduce a new structure and it has since been implemented in January 2018. This restructuring is to ensure alignment with the Madrasah’s vision and mission and to provide students with a more holistic education that incorporates soft and hard skills development.
In our effort to produce future intellectual scholars, it is necessary that the Madrasah does not only equip its students with content knowledge taught in class, but also with 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. Although these skills may have already been incorporated in classroom-based lessons, the CCA Unit believe that they can be further developed in students through meaningful co-curricular activities that are well-planned and taught by qualified individuals.
The proposed new structure offers CCAs for Primary, Secondary and Pre-University students that will focus on skills development and hands-on application. A fresh variety of CCAs are introduced to cater to different students’ interest and needs. This is done based on the belief that every student is unique and has the potential to shine given the space and opportunity. Hence, it is hoped that the new CCA structure will empower our students through their passion that they will one day use to benefit the community.
