International Day was a huge success last week, as members of our community celebrated with traditional dress, wearing the colours of their national flag, participating in traditional games, an international family quiz, and the re-creation of some traditional cooked food.
Our IB Diplomma Programme students would like to keep the momentum of the Virtual International Day alive, through the power of cooking.
A new project will be run by five Year 12 CAS students, with CAS standing for Creativity, Activity and Service.
The CAS students would like to learn about different types of food within our community. The student-led project is called ‘Culture in a Cookbook’. The group of inspiring CAS leaders would like members of the BIS community to share recipes from their home country to collate into one large cookbook.
Email your favourite family dish to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 31st March. The CAS group will respond to your recipe with a follow up form to gather additional information that can support the Cookbook.
What is CAS?
CAS is one of the three Core subjects students complete as part of the IB Diploma Programme. A CAS portfolio should demonstrate :
- An 18 month continuous engagement
- Meeting of the 7 Learning Outcomes
- Experience of a wide variety of activities that cover all 3 strands
- Completion of a group project.
The CAS International Cookbook Team look forward to receiving your recipes!
