Diploma Programme - Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience. It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, fostering a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work. At the same time, CAS is an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the Diploma Programme (DP).
Students may participate in theatre or musical productions, sports and community service activities. Through these activities students will develop greater awareness of themselves and concern for others, engagement with the world of ideas as well as the ability to work cooperatively with other people. Students are expected to be involved in CAS activities and must successfully complete eight outcomes by the completion of the Diploma Programme.
A system of self-evaluation encourages students to reflect on the benefits of CAS participation to themselves and others and to evaluate the understanding and insights acquired.
