Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) update

17 September 2014

With the introduction of the IB Diploma in the sixth form, CAS makes up one of the key areas of the IB Diploma alongside TOK and the Extended Essay component. CAS is an IB subject with a difference. It is not examined and carries no points, yet you can’t pass the Diploma without it. Students from BSB will undertake a range of Creativity, Action and Service based initiatives in the local community during the two year Diploma program. Students then need to  ensure they thoroughly reflect on their CAS experiences to become a better global citizen.

Students from BSB have already started participating in many programs. These include playing volleyball and table tennis in local ISAC competitions at school. A large group of students has also attended training at Roundabout to help people less fortunate. Students were trained in how to work on the shop floor, providing customer service and the storage and distribution of goods for the charity. This week students sorted educational materials for students in Yunnan province. Later this week the educational materials will be sent to schools that were affected by the recent earthquake in Yunnan Province. Students are also looking at starting a number of fund raising proposals to help charities in the local area.

A number of students are also completing creativity and service at the Chatterbox café and learning new skills, while raising money for charity. If you see the students participating in community events please encourage them and support their service based work. Finally if you are interested in helping the CAS students please contact Mr. Mounter with any inquiries.
