Every year, the SSHS Committee on Students’ Activities actively leads hundreds of students in various activities that develop the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of each student. One of the many activities is the CSA Outreach Program for our own school maintenance staff, drivers and the security guards. The main significance of this program is to show our gratitude to people who have been serving the school with happiness the whole year round, and a high time for CSA officers to give back services to them.
