Creativity, Activity and Service projects
CAS takes education beyond the classroom and gives students the chance to devise their own Creativity, Activity and Service projects. In doing so, students challenge themselves whilst helping others. CAS is a fundamental element at the core of the IB Diploma. Emphasis is placed on the experiential learning and students should be involved in a balanced challenging range of activities. The IB defines CAS as:
- Creativity: exploring and extending ideas leading to an original or interpretive product or performance.
- Activity: physical exertion contributing to healthy lifestyle.
- Service: collaborative and reciprocal engagement with the community in response to an authentic need.
