Passion Pursuit (Elective) (OP & IP)
About Passion Pursuit
The Passion Pursuit programme in Catholic High School comprises an Independent and Elective component. The programme objectives are broadly to enable students to:
- develop 21st Century Competencies;
- discover passions by undertaking new challenges; and
- develop new skills and acquire knowledge beyond the classroom
Passion Pursuit (Elective)
Passion Pursuit (Elective) makes up a unique part of our CHS curriculum. Designed to develop passion for learning, guided by our firm belief that joy of learning and personal choice are key to grooming our future leaders. The programmes are offered to all IP and OP students, providing varied and enjoyable learning experiences in sports and aesthetics not usually featured in school. Students will opt for their preferred activities such as Indoor Climbing defined under “Ruggedness Electives”, Imagination Express under “Creative Electives” and Drones under “Inventive Electives”. The main goal of the programme is to develop “Interesting Catholic High gentlemen” who explore a broad spectrum of interest areas, understand what passion really means and eventually actualise it as part of purposeful living.
Approach-wise, students will be offered a wide variety of activities after their end-of-year examinations, expanding their exposure in 3 categories of elective modules:
- Ruggedness Electives
- Creative Electives
- Inventive Electives
Students get to try out many experiences that will not be found in the usual school curriculum. This adds to the holistic development of students beyond their academic and CCA involvements.
