Student Development

Co-curricular Activities

CCA is regarded as an integral part of school life in Dunman High School.  Through participation in CCA, we hope to develop in our students a sound body, a disciplined mind, good character, leadership qualities and sportsmanship. Our CCA programme places great emphasis in developing skills, inculcating in our students the correct values and desirable social attitudes, and providing them with healthy recreation and enjoyment.  Provision is also made for the training of the talented.  At Senior High, students will be given greater room to propose and run their own CCAs so as to encourage them to take greater ownership over CCA, follow their passions and build camaraderie.

Junior High

Senior High

The Senior High CCA framework has been designed to provide opportunities for students to discover their interests and pursue their passions, to develop new peaks of excellence at senior high and to maintain junior high peaks of excellence at senior high, and hence develop distinctive niches that characterize Dunman High School.  Hence, at the end of Year 4, students are encouraged to either propose new CCA that they wish to set up in their Senior High years, or to remain in their current CCA to further develop their areas of talent or to develop their leadership abilities, as leaders to their juniors.
