Abstract

Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) is a very important and essential part of educational system. In aspect of education, CCAs prepares the students to be holistic. Nevertheless more emphasis has generally been given to the CCAs aspect resulting from the student’s inability to link the excellence in performance academically to the active participation in CCAs. Besides, Holistic Student Development (HSD) through Critical Agenda Project (CAP) of National Higher Education Strategic Plan (PSPTN), in line with the government’s efforts to produce graduates with skills in high-impact technology and would be absorbed as workers after completing their training at a particular company including for those who preferred to be self-employed. This paper will discuss the methodological approach regarding the dominant factors and the effects of CCAs among polytechnics’ students in promoting the progress of the HSD in polytechnic based on five aspects which is intellectual, emotional, spiritual, physical and social.
