CAS

CAS consists of three strands, Creativity, Activity and Service, and is about the education of the whole person! CAS is one of the core components and is a mandatory part of the IB Diploma. Not meeting the CAS requirements leads to Failing Conditions.

CAS Aims

The CAS program aims to develop students who:

  • Enjoy and appreciate a range of CAS experiences
  • Reflect in a structured way upon their experiences
  • Identify goals, develop strategies and find new ways for personal growth
  • Explore new possibilities, take on new challenges and try out new roles
  • Understand that they are members of local and global communities with responsibilities towards each other and to the environment
  • Are active participants in long-term, collaborative projects

How the student should work with CAS

The student should be continuously involved with CAS for at least 18 months and preferably on a weekly basis. It is important to have a good balance between the three strands.

Creativity: exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performances For example dancing, theatre, music or art.

Activity: physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle. For example participation in expeditions, individual or team sports

Service: collaborative and reciprocal community engagement in response to an authentic need. For example working as a volunteer, helping charity organizations

Our CAS Coordinators are here to guide students through this process and to help students deal with these new challenges.
