Message from the School Committee
Dear CCS Community,
We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the School Committee of CCS and let you know a bit more about what we do.
What is the CCS School Committee?
The School Committee (SC) was created by the governing body (Yayasan) and administrators of CCS to enhance the sound and purposeful governance of CCS. We are made up of individuals from diverse backgrounds with specific areas of expertise and include parents, teachers, school principals, a FoCCS representative and the Yayasan.
What does the School Committee do?
The SC plays an advisory role in overseeing the delivery of the school’s strategic aims and objectives, and in supporting the school’s senior leaders to be accountable for CCS’s educational outcomes. The SC also acts as a sounding board for parent concerns via its parent reps from across the year groups.
The SC has regular meetings with the school principals, teacher representatives and Yayasan to advise on topics such as:
- Strategic plans;
- School policies;
- School accreditations;
- Curriculum, standards and performance;
- Financial reports;
- Alignment with CCS Mission and Vision.
We would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact SC members in person or come to our next open meeting to learn more or provide feedback. You can also email us at [email protected].Best regards,
School Committee Chairperson

Year 1T students played parachute tag! Parachute games encourage cooperation and teamwork in non-competitive play. In a fun, interactive way, students are developing their listening skills as they learn how to manoeuvre the parachute. The students require a coordinated effort to get the chute high enough for two students, who are opposite holders, to change places by going underneath the chute. They were also able to run under and pull down the chute and sit simultaneously on the ground so it remained inflated like a dome tent. This is more difficult than it sounds as it requires a combined effort to achieve. – Ms Lori Thakran.
