Co-Curricular Activities

Co-Curricular Activities

Co-curricular activities enhance and build on children's experiences and learning within the school. Activities contribute to children's intellectual, social, cultural, and emotional development. They meet a variety of needs and cultures within the school community and will be used to build links with the wider community. We expect all students to participate in some form of regular activity outside school hours to promote their general health and well-being. Teachers provide extra-curricular activities in areas they are passionate and knowledgeable about. In addition, student-led CCAs are offered alongside teacher-led activities. Student-led CCAs are run by secondary students, usually targeting primary students, and have a teacher mentor to guide the students and develop their leadership skills. 


Recently, there has been a significant increase in the number of students participating in the CCA programme. This progress has allowed us to invest more resources into developing and expanding the programme. We believe that it is important for all students to engage in regular activities outside of school hours for their overall health and well-being. Therefore, we encourage all students to get involved in some form of extracurricular activity.


CCA provision for 2023-24


The Co-Curricular Activities Fee for 2023-24 is HK$600 per student. With all students paying this fee regardless of the number of CCAs they commit to, we are able to provide more CCAs and Sports than we ever have previously. This fee also allows us to invest in better resources and experts to further enhance the experiences students gain from their activities. We encourage you to contribute to the further development of our high-quality and sustainable programme by continuing to pay this fee so all our students across the whole school can “Discover where their true passion lies”.

Enrolment Priority: In order to allow as many students as possible to participate in a CCA, where activities are over-subscribed, students who are not enrolled in any other activity will be given priority over students who already have an assigned CCA. If you choose to sign your child up for more than one CCA, preferences will NOT be accounted for. If your child does not receive an allocation for one term, they will be given priority for the next term's enrolment. The number of activities you opt-in for, does not give you a higher priority. The time that you enrol also does not give you priority. As long as you have enrolled in the enrolment period, you will allocated as per the priority mentioned above.


It will be presumed that your child is happy to do any of the CCAs you have enrolled for. Enrolling for a CCA does not mean you/your child has been accepted (when the system shows ‘Allocated’ beside the activity name, is confirmation of your enrolment). Students who are accepted and enrolled in a CCA will receive an acceptance confirmation via the ESF App.


Sign-up for CCAs and Sports occurs via the ESF App (for parents) and the Ding! platform (for students).
