The International Baccalaureate aims to develop internationally minded people who become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. To promote this outcome, students are required to undertake a series of experiences based in Creativity, Activity and Service and reflect upon their personal growth during this journey. This is defined as CAS and is found at the heart of the Diploma Programme. Together with the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge, CAS makes up the Diploma Core and evidence of your journey is a requirement to pass the IB Diploma Programme.
This week a group of our IB students gave their time to help with the Christmas Giving Tree preparations in conjunction with the PTA and also students from the Primary school. Students have already given their time to help with translations, this week it was putting together wishes. In the future they will be wrapping presents and delivering them to later this term. They really are “Santa’s little helpers”. A massive thanks also to the PTA for the support and organisation – we make a great team!
A reminder also that there are still some places left on the Kilimanjaro Expedition that takes place in February, please see the attached form and check out the trip details on the Firefly Expeditions page that can be found on the Secondary area.
