AS, in other words CREATIVITY-ACTIVITY-SERVICE, is a relevant part of the IB Diploma Programme. It must be done regularly in the course of the two years of the programme, as failure to complete this component in a systematic manner deprives a student of the Diploma.
- CREATIVITY, stands for the development of creative thinking;
- ACTIVITY means physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle.
- SERVICE relates to an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student
All Diploma Programme students are obligated to contribute to varied non-profit activities in order to develop personality, creativity, responsibility, independence and teamwork. It is the student who decides on the type of activities they want to engage in, and takes full responsibility for completing them. Our school offers a wide selection of CAS opportunities, however, some of them must be also undertaken by students collaborating with external institutions.
All experiences must enable DP students to achieve seven outcomes of CAS (undertake new challenges, plan and initiate activities, work collaboratively with others, show perseverance and commitment, engage with issues of global, importance, consider ethical implications, develop new skills). Students’ CAS contributions must be supported with documents (proposal and evaluation forms) and authentic evidence, for instance certificates, diplomas, confirmations, photos, etc.
CAS programme encompasses varied types of activities, including charity actions, supporting school events, developing individual knowledge, physical activities, learning a new language, piano lessons, gym, taking part in school debates, school newspaper, school Facebook fan page, student council etc.
