Creativity, Action and Service (CAS)

CAS is a core component of the IB programme. For many IB students, CAS is the highlight of their final two years of school, creating experiences and memories that last a lifetime.

The CAS programme begins in Year 12, under the supervision of the CAS Coordinator. Over the course of the IB, all pupils must complete 150 hours of CAS, consisting of 50 hours of Creativity, 50 hours of Action, and 50 hours of Service.

There are so many initiatives for pupils to get involved with, and they have the freedom to propose their own ideas.

The three strands of CAS explained:

Creativity

Arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking, designing or innovating.

Action

Physical activity contributing to a healthy lifestyle, complementing academic work elsewhere in the Diploma Programme.

Service

Voluntary activities that have a learning benefit for the student. The rights, dignity and autonomy of all those involved are respected.

CAS enables students to demonstrate attributes of the IB learner profile in real and practical ways, to grow as unique individuals and to recognize their role in relation to others.
