CAS – holistic student growth and developing unique personal strengths

CAS is a core part of high school and helps our students stand out from the rest of students around the world. Our students must complete a robust CAS programme as part of their Diploma Programme here at NACIS. They are supported by a CAS Advisor who provides guidance and encouragement as they develop their skills and strengths. Our Grade 10 students are introduced to CAS in small groups and receive guidance in weekly CAS sessions. All students create CAS portfolios on Managebac, which helps them track their activities and also record evidence that can be used for later college applications.
1. House Projects

As part of their CAS programme, students have had a successful launch of their House Projects which are linked to the UNICEF Global Goals and the Nord Anglia Global Challenge. Students are currently working on 3 projects:

(1) Action Plans for Goal 4 – Quality Education and Goal 16 Peace, Justice and strong institutions,
(2) Raising Awareness campaigns for the Global Goals,
(3) NACIS Talks series for the Global Goals.

All student work will be part of an exhibition in December. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their projects and welcome any parents who would like to be involved to contact the school. 
2. Physical Activity

From the beginning of this semester, students have been offered a menu of weekly physical activity classes including spin class, circuit training, light intensity cardio, and high intensity interval training. These activities are designed to cater to age-appropriate health needs, and encourage students to self-manage a balanced schedule of academic and physical activity.
