CAS Programme

Creativity Activity Service (CAS)

CAS is an exciting Program at the core of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program!  Participation in Creativity, in Activity, and in Service encourages students to share their energy and special talents while developing awareness, concern and the ability to work cooperatively with others. Students are encouraged to initiate their own projects individually or collectively with their fellow students. CAS is holistic and many activities and projects overlap between creativity, activity and service.  The CAS program will challenge students, help them to acquire new skills and interests, develop a spirit of discovery and self-reliance, and foster awareness of themselves and of others. The IB aims for balance: students are asked not just to serve others but to nurture themselves as well as follow their passion for art and music, develop new skills in sports, and explore their personal boundaries.

CAS will inspire students to:

  • Actively discover their passion by exploring a range of new CAS experiences
  • Set goals and strive for excellence
  • Learn and work collaboratively
  • Increase self-awareness through reflection
  • Improve the world around them through local and international service projects
  • Understand the links between CAS and their subjects

“… made me feel really involved in the activity as I felt part of a big community of people who dedicate their time to these children. It was a long day filled with fun activities and the beautiful fact is that the volunteers are both adults and teenagers.” Erica Berlot.
