CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service), is one of the core requirements for the IB Diploma Programme. 

Students are involved in a range of different activities along with the academics over a period of two years.  Successful completion of CAS is a requirement for the award of the IB diploma.


Through CAS, students continue to strengthen the approaches to learning they encounter and develop in the PYP and MYP. In approaches to learning, students are encouraged to grow both personally and socially, developing skills such as cooperation, problem-solving, conflict resolution and creative and critical thinking, as well as developing their own identities. CAS continues to develop students’ ability to engage in critical reflection, offering increasingly sophisticated opportunities for students to analyse their own thinking, effort and performance. Students also learn how to set challenging goals and develop the commitment and perseverance to achieve them. (CAS guide)
