CAS trip

28 September 2017

Last week, the whole of Year 12 travelled to Ruzomberok for the annual CAS trip. The students took part in numerous activities, focusing on creativity, activity and service work (CAS).

CAS is a compulsory part of the IB diploma programme, and it was great to see them all approach it with such dedication and enthusiasm. Some of the activities we were involved with were:

  • Teaching English at a local primary school – this was a real challenge, but the students did a great job of planning their resources and delivering their resources. They all now have a great appreciation for their teachers!
  • Painting benches, tables and chairs for the primary school – using creativity to help out and improve the school environment.
  • Hiking, both individually and whilst completing team challenges – to get our hearts beating and blood pumping.
  • Volunteering at Liptovske Museum – we all got stuck in helping out at one of the ‘skanzen’ sites- a model 19th century village. We cleaned steam trains, shovelled coal, sorted wood for the stoves and polished antique furniture.
  • Building shelters as a team – using creative thinking and problem solving, and developing their teamwork and leadership skills.
  • Designing, creating and leading games for each other – we didn’t let the rain stop us! When the weather was bad we stayed indoors, and entertained ourselves with a variety of creative and amusing games and activities. This is when the students’ creativity really shone!

Overall this was a brilliant week, and all the students pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and tried new things. We were all very impressed with the attitude with which they approached these tasks, and they have already demonstrated so many of the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.

Great job Year 12!
